Kron Script to connect to oracle and execute queries automatically

Hi

I have couple of questions.

1. How can we connect to Oracle Sql directly form KRON script?
2. I have some log information in one table, how to fire a select query to get data from that table, after getting results i want to store those results into one file.
3. File name should be current system date, how can we create that text file in a specified location and store/append sql results into that file.
4. After creating and appending results,
                I have one more log file called "trace.log". in that file i have some oracle log information.
                How to grep oracle related errors from that file and append results to the newly created textfile.for ex todays date is 29062006, somy filename should be like "29-06-2006.txt"

Finally my text file must contatin sql query results + greped trace.log file results.

I need all these in only one script. Once i run that script, that is able to connect to oracle, fire a select query, get the results, create a new text file with present system date, get grepped results from trace.log file and append results to "$Sysdate.txt" file.

Thanks in advance
 and its very very urjent i have to complete this task by tomarrow.  I need quick responces.

Hi,

Simply add a grep after EOL, like this:

FILENAME=$(date +'%d-%m-%Y.txt')
sqlplus SCOTT/TIGER <<EOL >> $FILENAME
select count(1) from dual;
EOL
grep yourpatern /path/to/your/logfile >> $FILENAME

Hi anumalas,

1/2. A cron script is like any other script, except it has no screen output. So you could do:

sqlplus SCOTT/TIGER <<EOL > output
select count(1) from dual;
EOL

(or you could use the comprehensive output mechanisms of sqlplus)

3/4. Like
FILENAME=$(date +'%d-%m-%Y.txt')
command >>! $FILENAME


Enjoy,

Stefan

anumalas,

Sure:
FILENAME=$(date +'%d-%m-%Y.txt')
sqlplus SCOTT/TIGER <<EOL >> $FILENAME
select count(1) from dual;
EOL

...Be aware that anyone on your machine can see your sqlplus call, including your password parameter.

Hi

after executing above script it is also adding sql query to my generated text file. But i dont want to put query in that text file how to remove those lines from the generated file before adding grep results to that file.

I need reply asap. I have tried with sed but its showing output to console. i have tried like bellow

FILENAME=$(date +'%d-%m-%Y.txt')
sqlplus SCOTT/TIGER <<EOL >> $FILENAME
select count(1) from dual;
EOL
sed -e '1,10d' $FILENAME > $FFILENAME
grep 'mypattern'  /path/to/your/logfile >> $FILENAME


But it is showing empty results+grepped results.

I think im doing little mistake while overwriting to same text file.

Hope i will get reply soon....
