Problem with Oracle TableSpace sensor



Hi! I have a big oracle database and I want to know how much free space I have. I want to use Oracle Tablespace sensor, but it timeouts randomly, I have 6 hours scanning intervals and MetaScanTimeout increased to 1200 in regedit (DWORD 32-bit decimal). And all the time it gives error, "Your request has timed out". How can I resolve this error?

Hello there
Thanks for reaching us.
The time-out could be just a symptom of something else. this sensor is a high-impact sensor as described here, https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/oracle_tablespace_sensor
Having a lot of High-impact sensors could also consume all available resources, leading to time-out problems.
Are you monitoring this server on a local or remote network?
Consider deploying a remote probe locally to where the server is.
If the problem persists, I would suggest opening a ticket with TS to evaluate further this issue.https://www.paessler.com/contact

Hi! Thank you for your reply. I have only one tablespace sensor in my local network, and it is on the local probe. Actually we found solution, we added RAM and more CPU's and now it is working properly.
