Vipaka project is an update of Sean Hull's tool Karma for monitoring Oracle Databases.
Vipaka provides the capability to monitor multiple Oracle Databases from one interface.
To get started with vipaka, first edit a config file. For starters, use the basic.conf file. Edit it for the databases you'd like to connect to.
Next set the $VIPAKA_HOME environment variable. This specifies where vipaka will look for the vipaka.conf file (otherwise it will look in the current directory). Also, vipaka will store the .vipaka.pid, and .vipakafifo files here.
Next start vipakad running. You can use the -h option for help, or just start it like this:
"$ bin/vipakactl -s -c vipaka.conf"
start, stop, and query a running vipakad daemon. use -h option for help
main vipaka utility. You probably won't run this directly.
common code for vipakad, vipakactl, and vipakagentd.
This is the simplest of vipaka config files. Edit it to get started.

This is the document root where your html files will be generated. If
you're going to use vipaka with a webserver, put this in your web
doc_root, perhaps naming it vipaka. Use the -k option to vipakactl to
specify it's location, or the doc_root directive in your config file.
