Using oswatcher RPM Package on Oracle VM Server (Doc ID 2290852.1)

Last updated on MARCH 12, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 and later
Linux x86-64


Oracle support often recommends that the OSWatcher Black Box(*) tool be run for an extended period.  Should the system reboot during this time, the system administrator must manually restart the OSWatche Black Box, and allow it to run until the necessary data have been collected.

* NOTE: For more information about OSWatcherBB, please see <Document 1531223.1> OS Watcher User's Guide
* NOTE: For a comparable facility for Oracle Solaris, please see <Document 1583118.1> - How to Automate Startup/Shutdown of OSWatcher on Oracle Solaris

For Oracle VM server (dom0), we provide a RPM package, named oswatcher, to collect same diagnostic data.

This oswatcher RPM package is independent from OSWatcher Black Box tool.

After installing it, you can run oswatcher as a standard service on Oracle VM Server (dom0) to collect the required runtime data (like ps, top, netstat etc).
