Chapter 5. Monitoring

Red Hat Satellite Server contains many different components, many of which can be monitored. This chapter describes how to monitor different areas of the system.

5.1. Monitoring Tablespaces

Beginning with Satellite Server 5.6, the default database configuration is an embedded PostgreSQL database. PostgreSQL does not require that you manually allocate more space for the Satellite schema as it grows; PostgreSQL expands the schema of its own accord, provided that free disk space is available.
To check the database's size, run the db-control report command as the root user.
To check the size of each table in the database, run the db-control tablesizes command as the root user.
If you are using an external Oracle database, consult your database administrator for information about how to monitor tablespaces.
