E-AE: In PeopleTools 8.53 the V$SESSION Field MODULE Value for AppEngine is Different than Documented (Doc ID 1994923.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 25, 2015

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.53 to 8.53 [Release 8.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In PeopleTools 8.53 the delivered documentation is inaccurate regarding the V$SESSION field MODULE value for Application Engine processes:

- Docs :: PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.53 : Data Management > Monitoring PeopleSoft Database Connections >> Monitoring PeopleSoft MODULE and ACTION Information
              (e.g. at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E57990_01/pt853pbh2/eng/pt/tadm/task_MonitoringPeopleSoftDatabaseConnections-077989.html#uf9583d64-cb31-43f1-8bb9-85fecda2a412 ) says:

PeopleSoft Technology           MODULE Value              ACTION Value
.........
Application Engine                  'PSAE'                           Application Engine program name, section name, step, and type.

So the expected value in MODULE field for Application Engines would be just 'PSAE', but the actually observed value has this format
   'PSAE.<process-name>.<session-id-num>'

This should either be fixed in the product's behavior to match the documentation, or be documented just as it is, to avoid user confusion.
