OSWatcher – Installation and Usage

Install OSWatcher

  • Download OSWatcher from OTN and Untar oswatcher ( see Note Doc ID 301137.1 )
  • Untar the reladet TAR archive : tar xvf oswbb601.tar
  • Before starting OSWatcher is checking for a process with OSWatcher string in its full path .
  • Don’t install OSWatcher in a directory named OSWatcher and use full PATH to start the tool. Even running a gedit session (  $ gedit OSWatcher.dat ) will signal that OSWatcher is running and you can’t start OSWatcher
  • In short :  ps -e | grep OSWatch  should not return any results before starting OSWatcher

  1. nice article, just i have a question, when i tried to run de OSwatcher on solaris, the next error is appearing:

    oswbb heartbeat:Tue Nov 24 11:13:14 CST 2015
    ld.so.1: expr: fatal: libgmp.so.3: open failed: No such file or directory
    ld.so.1: expr: fatal: libgmp.so.3: open failed: No such file or directory
    .
    .
    .

    do you know any about it ??

  2. Sorry I don’t have access to any Solaris box .
    libgmp seems to be GNU MP portable library written in C for arbitrary precision arithmetic

    Can you find libgmp.so on your system ?
    If yes does your LD_LIBRARY_PATH point to that directory ?
    Is this a Solaris 10 Sparc system ?
