Regarding the restriction of the freeware Toad, here's what I wrote about Toad 8.5.

"Actually, the limit is per instance of a database. In case you use RAC (or OPS), manually configure each user to connect to a specific instance and avoid client side load balance when they use Toad. Then you're guaranteed to have 2 times number of instances simultaneous free Toad connections to your database."

"disallow the user you login as to select on v$session"

"very old versions of Toad no longer expire in spite of the warning..."


The first two comments may not be true with versions newer than 8.5.
