Hi,

I want to Trace the Transactions(Selects, Inserts, PL/SQLs etc..) happening in my Schema. Currently I am using Statement Tracer for ODBC, but this tool brings my application(from where i post the trns) to an abrupt end. Is there any other effective tracer i can use? or is there any utility tool provided by Oracle itself?

Thanks & regards

Manimaran

I am not sure but can't you audit DML from Oracle itself .

Here are the details of Oracle Auditing feature.

You cannot ( THere are some petty workaround. But a reliable method is to have proper audit rights / DBA rights).
Just curious.
If you are not entitled to get 'Audit related thingies' then,
what are you really worried about.
If you want to play a Cop, you need some authority.

Please let me re-phrase the question.
>>I want to Trace the Transactions(Selects, Inserts, PL/SQLs etc..)

Do you want to just trace the sql/plsql statments executing in your OWN session /users session or
you want to know who did it ( in case SOME other user is inserting deleting into your schema)?
Please explain.

It's not question of being a Cop, My company's Business Application has a large set of tables, where Business Rules, trn data are stored. Though an extensive help is available, it is difficult to trap the errors especially when it fails in Business Rules Tables. Since the trn's tables are known by us we don't have a problem.

The core application development team sits in New York & Vienna, it takes time to get an reply from them. So i thought why not a tracer be put in . If you have worked in MS-SQL, u would have come across the Tracer tool provided by them.

I tried a freeware 'statement tracer', but it chokes up the memory.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks & regards

Mani

I mean any action in my schema should be traced, the same way available in MS-SQL Transaction Tracer.

There are different methods available.
1. Sql tracing based on events.
You can trace all internal errors, every sql issued , their plans and stats through this.
But you cannot see who issued it.
This is more for analyzing server level / session level internals.Not on transaction level
2. Auditing.
This would this would give information like, who did what? was the operation success.
3. I believe, you are looking for what we call Logminer.

But all above needs some kind of Administrative rights.

As I have mentioned in my earlier mails, I am using an Third Party Tool 'Statement Tracer' a freeware downloaded from www.aboves.com

The problem is it chokes up the memory and my application which is under Tracer comes to an abrupt end when the no of queries is quite high.

Getting some rights from dba for some auditing is totally ruled out.

I just wanted to know any other Tracer available which does'nt occupy more memory space.

My idea is to find out in which table my Insert or any other statement failed. Our internal log of the application will give only the error no in case of our Businees Rule tables and error no. as well as table name for our transaction tables.

I hope I've given a better picture now.

Thanks & regards

Are you only able to answer the same thing to 4 or 5 years old closed topic?
Are your product not able to satisfy current problems?
