If you plan to run up.time with an Oracle DataStore, you can use the information in the Oracle TNS connection string to populate database-specific fields that need to be set in the uptime.conf file.

The uptime.conf file settings for an Oracle DataStore are:

dbDriver=oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver
dbType=oracle
dbHostname=oraserv
dbPort=1521
dbName=uptime
dbUsername=name
dbPassword=password

Below is a sample of a TNS connection string:

(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=oracle1-2-3.yourdomain.com) (PORT=1521)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=oradb.yourdomain.com)))

Add the values highlighted in bold in the TNS connection string above into the uptime.conf file as follows:

dbHostname=oracle1-2-3.yourdomain.com
dbPort=1521
dbName=oradb.yourdomain.com
