To check if oracle is up:

@echo off
qprocess oracle.exe
if not ERRORLEVEL 0 goto :oracle_down
qprocess tnslsnr.exe
if not ERRORLEVEL 0 goto :listener_down

set MESS=Oracle is up and listening
goto mail

:oracle_down
set MESS=oracle.exe not running
goto mail

:listener_down
set MESS=tnslsnr.exe not running
goto mail

:mail
echo %MESS%
rem Since Windows is not able to send a mail from command line, You
rem have to solve it by Yourself.
rem I personally use Blat:

You will need to add one more step:  The only way to guarantee Oracle is working properly is to connect to it using sql*plus.

Oracle.exe can be running and the database can be down.

How can this be applied to a batch script   Slightwv ?

As Bigboj said, I wrote a batch script  as shown below ;

@echo off
qprocess oracle.exe
if not  ERRORLEVEL 0 goto :oracle_down
:oracle_down
set MESS=%COMPUTERNAME% oracle.exe not  running
goto mail
:mail
echo %MESS%


How can the sqlplus command ( sqlplus sys/xxxx as sysdba )  can be applied to this script?
And what are other tools or scripts except Blat application for sending mail ?

Try the following code for sqlplus

for mail maybe a VBS script:

or powershell:
http://weblogs.asp.net/steveschofield/archive/2008/01/09/send-email-with-powershell-script-schedule-script-with-windows-task-scheduler.aspx
@echo off
(
echo username/password
echo whenever sqlerror exit failure
echo select 'Works' from dual;
) | sqlplus -s

echo %ERRORLEVEL%

Open in new window
