I've got a startup trigger that executes the following (mostly lifted from the latest ncoug journal<http://www.nocoug.org/Journal/NoCOUG_Journal_201108.pdf>): PROCEDURE prc_start_services IS service_already_started EXCEPTION; PRAGMA EXCEPTION_INIT(service_already_started,-44305); BEGIN FOR i IN (SELECT NAME FROM dba_services) LOOP BEGIN dbms_service.start_service(i.NAME); EXCEPTION WHEN service_already_started THEN --this means the service is already running so no need to crash NULL; END; END LOOP; END prc_start_services; For monitoring, you could easily write something to query V$active_services or monitor the output of "lsnrctl services"?

I recently got a complaint that users were unable to connect to one of the databases. When I connected, I found that the service they connect to was not running. My guess is that we (the DBAs) failed to restart that service after the last maintenance window - and it seems that in 10g, services do not automatically start when you bring the instance up. So - how do people monitor that the necessary services are up and running? Can Grid Control be set to alert if a service is down? Thanks!
