OEM12C: Is Down the same as DOWN?

Daryl E. Explorer

We had an instance go DOWN last night .. but OEM12c never triggered the critical alert. Looking into the metric values we see:




We got the Warning alert for MOUNTED but never got an alert for the database being down.


The metric policy is set to DOWN|UNKNOWN - should that have fired? Should I change the metric to Down|DOWN|UNKNOWN or is something wrong with the metric evaulation?

    Hi Team,


    Yes you right

    When using the Matches operator for a metric, the values defined in the Critical or Warning Thresholds are case sensitive, so the match must be exact.

    Add the value "Down" to the Critical threshold of the Response:State metric so that the match set of values becomes "DOWN|UNKNOWN.*|Down" on the Metric page of the database target.

    Once done it should work
