Kill hanging listener processes

Case Study:

Scorfield is working in support team. He needs to kill Listener if the listener is in hung state at night when DBA’s are not available.

 

Solution:

Create a script that can kill the listener process and provide sudo access to scorfield to execute the script.

[root@stagedb3 ~]# vi /usr/local/bin/kill_listener.sh

#!/bin/sh

kill -9 `ps -ef|grep -v grep|grep LISTENER|grep oracle|awk '{print $2}'|xargs`

echo "Tried to kill Oracle listener(s), check with ps -ef if the process(es) died "

[root@stagedb3 ~]# chown oracle:dba /usr/local/bin/kill_listener.sh

[root@stagedb3 ~]# chmod 600 /usr/local/bin/kill_listener.sh

 

[root@stagedb3 ~]# vi /etc/sudoers

scorfield ALL=(oracle)    NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/kill_listener.sh

 

Now Test it:

[scorfield@stagedb3 ~]$ sudo -i -u oracle /usr/local/bin/kill_listener.sh

Tried to kill Oracle listener(s), check with ps -ef if the process(es) died

[scorfield@stagedb3 ~]$ ps -ef | grep LISTENER|grep oracle

There should not be any process running.
