"low space usage on Satellite oracle DB" email needs wording changed
Last modified: 2009-09-17 03:02:01 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #210342 +++
Description of problem:
The subject line of the email that gets sent by check-oracle-space-usage.sh
(rhn-dobby) should be reworded. Currently it says "Warning - low space usage on
Satellite oracle DB" but this says (to me) that there is plenty of space left.
Suggested new wording:
"Warning - running low on free space for your RHN Satellite Oracle database"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a 415 satellite.
2. Exceed 90% usage in one of the tablespaces of the satellite db. An easy way
might be to change /etc/cron.daily/check-oracle-space-usage.sh to say "if [ $num
-gt 5 ]" instead of 90.
3. Copy /etc/cron.daily/check-oracle-space-usage.sh to
4. Restart crond.
5. Sync a channel.
6. Wait for the email to the satellite admin warning that one of the
tablespaces is running low.
Less confusing wording.

Step 2 above should be "Exceed 5% usage ..." The default is 90% usage. But
that might take too long.

moving to uncommitted
Fixed in git, commit
Confirmed the new text by installing spacewalk-dobby and checking the script in question:
SUBJECT="Warning - high tablespace usage on Satellite oracle DB"
BODY="This is a notice to let you know that you have gone over 90% usage in
one of the Oracle Tablespaces. We recommend to be proactive and increase the
size of the tablespace before getting to 100% usage. Please consult
the Satellite documentation on using db-control to increase the size or
contact Red Hat Support for assistance."
Verified in spacewalk 0.3.
Spacewalk has been released for some time.
