    Primitive Way

      Hi All,

      Primitive way sometimes is the fastest way. :)

      I have a one critical remote PROD database that I want to check every 10 mins for its connectivity. If connection fails an email & SMS is sent to me.
      My question is what is the best way to check if the remote database is up and running?

      Can I use sqlplus system/manager@PROD? But sometimes this took so long and hanging. I want the fastest response time?

      Thanks a lot,
