Generating the OCL trace v16

The OCL tracing option logs direct communication (queries, updates, and so on) with the backend in the specified OCI_DEBUG_LOG file. It also logs the functions/APIs that were invoked. The trace files are generated in the default working directory (oci_log_file_name). If you append the path with a file name (directory path/oci_log_file_name), then the trace files are generated at that specific location.

A trace file is generated for each connection in text-file (readable) format.


OCL tracing is disabled by default.

To generate the OCL trace:

  1. Enable the EDB client-side tracing for OCL. You can enable the OCL tracing by setting these environment variables:

    • export OCI_DEBUG_LEVEL=4

    • export OCI_DEBUG_LOG=oci_log_file

  2. After you export the environment variables, run the application. The OCL trace files are generated in the specified directory.
