Oracle probe connection

Discussion created by Chris548 on Mar 24, 2013

Anyone ever had a setup where one has an Oracle database running on a unix box and have the oracle probe on that box to connect to the database locally on it?  It seems that using the oracle probe, you need to have an oracle client on the server that is running the probe and also a tnsnames.ora file.  That makes sense and all for monitoring a database remotely, but to monitor it locally, is that really supported?
