JDBCStoredProcedureMonitor

The JDBCStoredProcedureMonitor checks the result of a stored procedure in a remote database. The result of the stored procedure has to be a boolean value (representing true or false). The service associated with this monitor is marked as up if the stored procedure returns true and marked as down in all other cases. It is based on the JDBC technology to connect and communicate with the database.

jdbc:postgresql://:OPENNMS_JDBC_HOSTNAME/opennms

user {}

Database user

postgres

This monitor implements the Common Configuration Parameters.

Provide the database driver

The JDBCStoredProcedureMonitor is based on JDBC and requires a JDBC driver to communicate with any database. Since Meridian itself uses a PostgreSQL database, the PostgreSQL JDBC driver is available out of the box. For all other database systems, you must provide a compatible JDBC driver to Meridian as a JAR file. To provide a JDBC driver, place the driver-jar in your $OPENNMS_HOME/lib folder.

Examples

The following example checks a stored procedure added to the PostgreSQL database Meridian uses. The stored procedure returns true as long as less than 250,000 events are in the Meridian events table.
