How to set Oracle Net Listener Tracing Dynamically or at the LSNRCTL Prompt

(Doc ID 1940914.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version 11.2.0.1 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 11.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 This document is intended to clarify that from 11.2 onwards there is no need to first set any tracing parameters under listener.ora or reload the listener to activate listener tracing with timestamps.

 Listener tracing can be enabled dynamically through 'set trc_level' command in lsnrctl utility. Independent if ADR is or not enabled, the trace is created with timestamps.
