Hi George,
what about just testing your own hypothesis, using good old SQL*Plus? then you will get solid evidence ... and yes indeed, dbms_monitor is a great new 10g feature.

kind regards,

Subject: disabling tracing via dbms_system

Hi all  

It is simple enough to se tracing by using dbms_system.set_env with 10046 and 4 as tracing and level, but how would you disable it,  

Just set both values to 0 ?    

PS: have a look at all the nice new features in dbms_monitor that comes with 10G, especiall like the conditional tracing that you can do on a module and action values set via dbms_applciation. See
