bool oci_set_client_info(resource $connection, string $client_info)
Sets the client information for Oracle tracing.
The client information is registered with the database when the next 'roundtrip' from PHP to the database occurs, typically when an SQL statement is executed.
The client information can subsequently be queried from database administration views such as V$SESSION.
The value may be retained across persistent connections.
TRUE on success or
FALSE on failure.
- resource $connection: An Oracle connection identifier, returned by oci_connect(), oci_pconnect(), or oci_new_connect().
- string $client_info: User chosen string up to 64 bytes long.
Example #1 Setting the client information
$c = oci_connect('hr', 'welcome', 'localhost/XE');
// Record the client information
oci_set_client_info($c, 'My Application Version 2');
// Code that causes a roundtrip, for example a query:
$s = oci_parse($c, 'select * from dual');
// While the script is running, the administrator can see the client // information: sqlplus system/welcome SQL> select client_info from v$session;
- Oracle version requirement This function is available when PHP is linked with Oracle Database libraries from version 10g onwards.
