Note:

The USER_DUMP_DEST initialization parameter is deprecated.

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 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.
