Information in this document applies to any platform.
The Goal is to make aware of when the underlying library is loaded after setting DBFIPS_140 in the database to comply with FIPS.
Setting the database complaint to DBFIPS_140 can be done from the below document
"Be aware that setting DBFIPS_140 to TRUE and thus using the underlying library in FIPS mode incurs a certain amount of overhead when the library is first loaded. This is due to the verification of the signature and the execution of the self tests on the library. Once the library is loaded, then there is no other impact on performance."
From above note it is unclear as to when the library is loaded.
