Last updated on JULY 14, 2017

Applies to:

SQL*Plus - Version 10.2.0.3 to 11.2.0.2 [Release Oracle10g to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
V$SESSION, APPINFO, DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO.READ_MODULE


Goal

Details of SQL*Plus session/module are not showing in V$SESSION, while querying the V$SESSION using the following SELECT statement:

SELECT module, process, program FROM v$session where module is not null;

 

One would see an output like:

MODULE                 PROCESS    PROGRAM
--------------------   ----------     ------------------------------
SQL*Plus                  4444:4204 sqlplus.exe STREAMS 21285 oracle@<host>(q000)


This output is not showing the module that is running in this SQL*Plus session.
