Setting up detail monitoring for VCS agents for Oracle

The Cluster Server agent for Oracle provides two levels of application monitoring: primary (basic monitoring) and secondary (detail monitoring).

See Monitor options for the Oracle agent in traditional database and container database.

You can use the agent's detail monitoring capability to monitor the status of a database and listener and increase the confidence in their availability. Before setting up detail monitoring, you must have the agent running satisfactorily at the basic level of monitoring.


Disable detail monitoring before undertaking any database maintenance that involves disabling database access to external users.
