Last updated on JUNE 30, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 9.0.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

To explain how to get information information on user, terminal, program when running in a RAC environment.  When running in a RAC environment querying the v$instance or v$process table will only show you for the node / instance from which you are querying and not for the entire RAC environment.

To query across clustered instances / RAC nodes the GV$ (global) views should be used.
