PS Command on AIX Does Not Show SQLPLUS Parameters (Doc ID 1410023.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2019

Applies to:

SQL*Plus - Version and later
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)


On AIX machines when issuing sqlplus user/pass@db arg1 and trying to check sqlplus parameters via PS command, they are not getting displayed.

For Example:

==> sqlplus <user>/<password> @/tmp/test.sql
==> ps -ef | grep sqlplus

refresh 655592 1954010 0 13:52:52 pts/2 0:00 sqlplus
refresh 2474218 921916 0 13:52:56 pts/2 0:00 grep sqlplus

It is expected that user/pass parameter not be shown for security purposes, but other parameters should be displayed.
