Hello DBA Experts,

I need to test this parameter before implementing it on databases .. sec_protocol_error_further_action;

Here's quick notes about this parameter

SEC_PROTOCOL_ERROR_FURTHER_ACTION can be set to the values of CONTINUE (the default), DELAY or DROP.

and we need to test "DROP" option

DROP: the offending session after x bad attempts and forcefully terminates the client connection after integer cumulative bad packets. (for example, a client transaction may be lost).


Please let me know how to test this by sending bad packets ..? how to define a bad packet to the server/database.. can you please give me a command or syntax to test this parameter..

Thank you in advance..

Thank you,.

Do you know how to send TCP packets?
If no, then forget to test the parameter, either don't use it or trust Oracle which will never tells you which packets are taken into account.
