script to check alert log for errors

I have several databases on one system.
I need a script to check each of these databases for oracle errors and then email me if errors are found
I have both 10g & 11g databases with different paths to where the alert log resides.

I need to run this script as myself not as the oracle owner

thanks

What OS?  Based on your previous questions, I'm assuming Unix.

>>I need to run this script as myself not as the oracle owner

Unless you are a privileged user, I doubt you have permission to see the alert logs.

>>I have both 10g & 11g databases with different paths to where the alert log resides.

If on Unix and everything is set up properly, /etc/oratab, should have the information you need to help set up the database and alert log locations.

>>I need a script to check each of these databases for oracle errors and then email me if errors are found

Don't you already have a script from your previous question:

I could not get that script to run - this system was not set up by me and in non standard in every way
I have to define the paths to each of the alert logs
so slightwv I will keep trying with this script - it is a simple script - like I said just having issues
I may have to run one for each of the non standard databases
so thanks

If you are now the person responsible for the system, you should take the time to standardize things.

Oracle created the Optimal Flexible Architecture (OFA) for a reason:  Standardization.
