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.
