Check INSTALL.txt for installation notes.

1. Features
   The Oracle DB Monitor ZenPack is a basic monitoring tool for Oracle database instances. It does not replace tools like Oracle Enterprise Manager nor does it aim to provide the same features.

   It has the following statistics/alerts:

. Using
   After installing the ZenPack according to instructions bind the Monitoring Template to your device and in the device configuration properties, fill out:

   - zOracleDBPassword - Password for above.
   - zOracleDBCnxString - The connection string as configured on your tnsnames.ora.

. Known Problems
   - Errors in zenhub.log related to derived thresholds
      When adding the template to a new device you may see errors like:

      These errors are normal and can be ignored, after about 15-30 minutes they should disappear.
