DB Test with Oracle

I am trying to test an Oracle DB through Argus, but Argus is having 
problems connecting to the DB. In the config I have:

Service DB {
dsn: DBI:Oracle:database=mydatabase;host=myhost;port=myport
user: theuser
pass: thepassword
sql: SELECT COUNT(*) FROM mydatabase

I've gotten this Perl DBI script to work okay:

#! /usr/bin/perl
use DBI;

my $dbh = DBI->connect('DBI:Oracle:mydatabase','theuser','thepassword')
or die "Couldn't connect to database: " . DBI->errstr;
my $sql = 'select * from database';
my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql);
my @row=$sth->fetchrow_array();
print $row[1];

Could someone assist me in what I may be doing incorrectly?

Great work and thanks in advance,
