trace on Oracle 8.1.6

Hi All,
we cloned production db on lab box. After start we noted that file system of db engine is full. We detected that are trace files on $ORACLE_HOME/network/trace, but in production box are not. What about?

Re: trace on Oracle 8.1.6


seems like trace is enabled at INSTANCE level or you are having errors on your database - see your alert.log

hope this helps

Re: trace on Oracle 8.1.6

Most likely, you have tracing turned on in your listener.ora. You can check into this by running the "lsnrctl status" command, which should display all of the information.

Your listener.ora will most likely be in /etc or $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin, and you should see something like "TRACE_LEVEL_LISTENER=". You can change this to "OFF". Once this is done, you need to restart the listener (lsnrctl stop/start or reload) for it to take effect.

If you dont see it in there, look in the sqlnet.ora file (same directories), and see if you have a process trace setup. Just remove this line, and it will be removed dynamiclly for all new processes.

If you are still getting this and the above doesn't work, please post your listener.ora and sqlnet.ora, and describe whether you have a large number of files in $ORACLE_HOME/network/trace or a single file, and what the format of the names are.

You should have the network tracing enabled on in the $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/listener.ora file.

Disable them and restart the listener.

Also you will need to check up the $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/sqlnet.ora file

If that points there remove it from there.
