BASH version 7 fixes two bugs

Version 7 of BASH is available and fixes two bugs leading to inconsistent rows in BASH$HIST_ACTIVE_SESS_HISTORY. Thanks to Robert Ortel for reporting and tracking down the cause.

If you already have BASH installed, you can use the SQL*Plus update script update_v6tov7.sql.


  • Fixed a UTC-conversion bug around midnight, resulting in too many entries in BASH$HIST_ACTIVE_SESS_HISTORY
  • Fixed a bug leading to duplicate rows in BASH$HIST_ACTIVE_SESS_HISTORY after 10 seconds with no active sessions sampled
