Tweaked bind variable script

I modified the bind variable extraction script that I normally use to make it more helpful to me.

Here was my earlier post with the old script: blog post

Here is my updated script:

set termout on 
set echo on
set linesize 32000
set pagesize 1000
set trimspool on

column NAME format a3
column VALUE_STRING format a17

spool bind2.log

select * from 
(select distinct
to_char(sb.LAST_CAPTURED,'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS') 
  DATE_TIME,
sb.NAME,
sb.VALUE_STRING 
from 
DBA_HIST_SQLBIND sb
where 
sb.sql_id='gxk0cj3qxug85' and
sb.WAS_CAPTURED='YES')
order by 
DATE_TIME,
NAME;

spool off

Replace gxk0cj3qxug85 with the sql_id of your own query.

The output looks like this (I’ve scrambled the values to obscure production data):

DATE_TIME           NAM VALUE_STRING
------------------- --- -----------------

2014-08-29 11:26:47 :B3 4444
2014-08-29 11:26:47 :B4 5435665
2014-08-29 11:26:47 :B5 4444
2014-08-29 11:26:47 :B6 787

This is better than the original script because it keeps related bind variable values together.

  1. I have similar script, but it also shows additional information from v$sql_bind_capture and real-time sql monitor(if version >=11) and with avoiding bug #6156624:
