Tcsh History File (.history) Becomes Huge In Size (Doc ID 1604017.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 31, 2019

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.0 to Oracle Linux 6.4 [Release OL5 to OL6U4]
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64
Linux x86


When the customer uses csh (Tcsh), the size of the .history file becomes too big. This issue can be reproduced by logging in as  Oracle user and by opening many sessions in csh, and execute some linux commands in opened csh consoles. The size of the .history file became big in size.  This results in extremely slow execution of csh scripts.


 Customer is using  tcsh-6.14-17.el5_5.2 version.
