Get notified by email using mailx

Very simple script to get notified by email on job completion. Mostly I use this script for background jobs ran through ‘nohup’.
export FILE=/home/oracle/test.log
sqlplus “/as sysdba” @test.sql
mailx -s “test” < $FILE

spool test.log
select name from v$database;
spool off

Now test the script as

$ nohup sh >> test.out 2>&1 &

Check your inbox

Cheers !
