I know Oracle OEM 9 is obsoleted, but I'm still needing to support a number of installations.
I have two issues with its email alert notification facility:
1/ The typical email it (seems to) emit looks like this:
Name : HEL_AIX_File_System_Full
Target Name : helbrs
Target Type : Node
Node Name : helbrs
Status : WARNING
Utilized (%) (IBM AIX File System): Current value for /appl/sita/ibris is 80.130577.

a) I assume(d) that the 2nd occurrence of 'WARNING' is a repeat of the 'Status:' field above it.
I.e. the status of this specific event
b) Under some conditions I've seen a status other than 'WARNING', 'CRITICAL', or 'CLEARED'.
Name : BEY_DataBase_Down
Target Name : i_arch_BEY
Target Type : Database
Node Name : beybrs
Status : NODE UNREACHABLE
VNI-4009 : Cannot contact agent on the node. Agent may be down or network communication to the node has failed.

Event test "Database UpDown" is cleared

so 'Status' isn't always 'Status'? Can someone explain what I can really expect?
What the rules of operation really are, and what values I can expect in the emails?
c) In that example above, there are actually 2 events shown. Obviously this is
possible. but I was using the 'repeat' of the 'Status' value as the indicator
for the 'end of the message' field (immediately above it). But that assumption
is no longer applicable for this two event example.
d) an alternative would be for me to assume an alert's sequence is fixed
as a (possibly repeating) sequence of:
- event name/type
- event message
- event status (sort of)
but... is the event message guaranteed to be only a single line terminated by
a CR (so that I can 'find the status portion').
(because all the other lines are single lines).
[A reply by email as well as the forum posting would be appreciated.]
