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,
