Re: Database objects and internal connections?

is oracle breaking your connection with a policy or is it being done by the 
operating system? ora-3113 usually occurs when the OS times you out. its 
possible that the OS cut off your connect and your session completed. do an 
sql_trace to a file, to see what happens. you can do a sqlnet trace on the 
client to see what happens with your connection. 
when i time out due to an oracle profile i typically get:

ERROR:
ORA-02396: exceeded maximum idle time, please connect again


rest is inline

dunno, but doubt it. you could just be losing your connection and then the 
database sessions stays attached. you can test this by tracing your session to 
a file and seeing what happens. 

you can determine if its oracle cutting you off by checking dba_users.profile 
to get your profile, then finding out your time limits.

dont think this is what is going on. I think its the OS timing you out.

just means you have more time to be connected. sounds like its your OS timing 
you out. so its up to your sys admins.
