LOCAL=YES => local connection
LOCAL=NO => remote connection

I faced a situation where my database was taking
long time to down when i issued shutdown immediate
( at that time some users were still connected).
so can i use ps -ef |grep LOCAL=NO to list and
kill processes using kill -9 spid (connecting remotely)
that are still in action if i face such situation
from nxt time ?

I think if i kill the processes which lists
from ps -ef |grep LOCAL=YES
will end up in trouble
ie the local connection will get closed.

Please correct me if im wrong.

Use shutdown abort if you don't want to wait.
Of course you have to know the drawbacks (as well as those when you kill the process).

But babu ,we are not supposed to kill sessions listing from ps -ef | grep local=yes because its a local connection and your current session will be hanged/closed.so it s advisable to kill those sessions that are remote connections ( ps -ef | grep local=no ) .

For your information, check the answer given my michel.


Correct me if i am wrong

As per Mr Mic; shutdown abort should work; but as per as i know; don't try to use shutdown abort; Try to kill your known session instead of doing shutdown abort.

If your not able to find session; Then follow Mr Mic suggestion.

Thanks

Why?
It is better to shutdown abort and let Oracle kill its processes than to kill the processes by yourself and let Oracle discovers they have been killed.
