Last updated on JULY 16, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle E-Business Suite Performance - Version 12.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 E-Business Suite 12.2 Applications Performance, SQL Tuning issues

 When users select Help -> Diagnostics -> Trace -> Regular Trace, no file is created at the specified location after following the below document:

<Note 438652.1> - R12: Forms Runtime Diagnostics (FRD), Tracing And Logging For Forms In Oracle Applications (Doc ID 438652.1)

A popup shows that the trace was successfully generated, but when you navigate to the directory where the TRACE is supposed to be, there is no trace file.

If users select any of the other trace options eg. binds, waits, or bind+waits, the trace file is generated successfully at the specified location.

The issue only occurs when selecting a Regular Trace.


 Recent migration to Release 12.2.
