I have this below question which is asked in a interview
May I know how to check whether the database is running or not from the os level ?
Please share your views,
Thanks in advance.
depends on the O/S you are using, Unix or Windows? I would use Korn shell script to monitor the Oracle background process and scripts to check of Oracle is accepting connections.
This UNIX command will show the number of processes for your instance:
In Windows I would look into services.msc
