USER_DUMP_DEST

Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax USER_DUMP_DEST = { pathname | directory }
Default value Operating system-dependent
Modifiable ALTER SYSTEM
Range of values Any valid local path, directory, or disk

USER_DUMP_DEST specifies the pathname for a directory where the server will write debugging trace files on behalf of a user process.

For example, this directory might be set as follows:

  • On MS-DOS: C:\ORACLE\UTRC

  • On UNIX: /oracle/utrc

  • On VMS: DISK$UR3:[ORACLE.UTRC]

Note:

This parameter is ignored by the new diagnosability infrastructure introduced in Oracle Database 11g Release 1 (11.1), which places trace and core files in a location controlled by the DIAGNOSTIC_DEST initialization parameter.
