DB version 10.2.
Trigger on logon for tracing:

create trigger TRG_LOGON after logon on database
if (user='SUB') then
execute immediate 'alter session set tracefile_identifier = TEST_TEST';
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'alter session set MAX_DUMP_FILE_SIZE = unlimited';
execute immediate 'alter session set TIMED_STATISTICS = TRUE';
execute immediate 'alter session set events ''10046 trace name context forever, level 8''';
end if;
end ;

Session works correctly.
SQL-trace file created, but contains only one row like

: Dump file .../u01/home/oracle/admin/db/udump/x_ora_9999_qwerty.trc

and nothing else.

Why ?

Oh well, this is probably a complete nonsense, but - could you go to this directory and run TKPROF against 'x_ora_9999_qwerty.trc' file? After it is completed, read a human readable file (instead of a .trc file).

as littlefoot mention ur "readable file"
then you can generate .txt file through tkprof utility for .trc files.


start >>>>> run >>>> cmd

C:\>tkprof D:\oracle\product\10.1.0\admin\orcl\bdump\orcl_ora_656.trc c:\tracef
