RE: v$session question

On Unix, you need to kill the unix session first before killing the Oracle session. Kill the spid value returned from this query on the unix prompt:
kill -9 999999
Then kill the session within the database with your "alter kill" statement.
select v$session.username, spid
from v$session, v$process
where v$session.username in ('yourusername')
order by last_call_et desc
Hope this helps.

It is HP-UX 11i. Oracle is 10.202.
I used the 'Alter system kill session' command from SQL PLus. orakill.exe? Is it for Windows?

When I kill a session and the status shows as "KILLED" in v$session, I assumed that the rollback is taking place. I am not sure what is happening here:Received on Fri Jan 30 2009 - 06:59:20 CST
