Shellscript: Which database is this service_name from?

Strange question, right? You should know you applications and databases and how everything works, right?

Happen that some days ago a client requested me to identify from which database is a service_name. Easy? Not if the server have 46 database instances running…

Ok, now how can I can this information as quick as possible?

I know that the command below give me all distinct databases in CRS:

/u01/app/ stat res -t -w "TYPE = ora.database.type"

Now, lets make some sed magic:

[root@nprd01dbadm01 ~]# /u01/app/ stat res -t -w "TYPE = ora.database.type" |grep ora. |sed 's/ora./srvctl status service -d /' |sed 's/.db/ |grep \$1/' | head -1
srvctl status service -d dba |grep $1

Export/Backup directly to Zip using MKNOD!

We all faced that situation when we have to make a logical backup/export and haven’t so much area to do that, right?
We know the export usually compress a lot on zip/gzip… It wouldn’t be great if we can export directly to compressed file?

This situation become much more common because of Datapump, that requires a directory accessible by database server. If you have not possibility to make a mounting point or any other area, this can help…

## BKP with MKNOD
DATE=`date +%Y%m%d%H%M`
mknod bkp_$DATE.dmp p
gzip  bkp_$DATE.dmp.gz &
### Uncomment and Ajust one of:
## MySQL:
#mysqldump -u $user -p$password $database > bkp_$DATE.dmp
## Oracle (Datapump or EXP)
expdp \"/ as sysdba\" dumpfile=bkp_$DATE.dmp full=y directory=DIRECTORY_EXAMPLE logfile=log_bkpzipped.log compress=y
#expdp $user/$password dumpfile=bkp_$DATE.dmp full=y directory=DIRECTORY_EXAMPLE logfile=log_bkpzipped.log
#exp \"/ as sysdba\" file=bkp_$DATE.dmp log=log_bkpzipped.log compress=y [tables=owner.table,..] [owner=schema1,..] [...]


Shellscript: Master Blaster KB!

Hi all!
I frequently have to search about shellscript syntax (things like conditions and comparatives).

Shellscripting is not a daily routine, but sometimes it’s needed and I never remmember from the last time…

For those kind of people, this link/book shall be very helpful ­čÖé

(it’s in portguese, but everyone will understand…)

Thanks for this tools, Aurelio!

Have a nice week guys!

Recursive string change

You want recursive change one string to another, it’s simple, you need a list with full file name path called ‘output_list’, and run command bellow:

cat output_list|while read line;
cp -p $line $line.bkp;
cat $line |sed ‘s/SOURCE_STRING/TARGET_STRING/g’ > $line.bkp && mv $line.bkp $line;

Keep in mind it’s a┬áDANGEROUS┬ácommand, double check your file list, and if necessary, ┬ámake a full backup from you system.

It will run on UNIX(ES) and Linux.
