Oracle 11g: Another New SQL*Plus Command
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I have been using this SQL*Plus command for a while now:

SQL> show spparameter service_names

SID      NAME          TYPE        VALUE
-------- ------------- ----------- ---------
*        service_names string      REDX

And guess what ?

  • The right syntax is actually show spparameters (with a “s” at the end of it).
  • It’s an 11g New Feature!

It doesn’t work with 10g:

SQL> show spparameters service_names

SP2-0735: unknown SHOW option beginning "spparamete..."
SP2-0735: unknown SHOW option beginning "service_na..."

I thought MySQL was trying to become as big as Oracle but it could be that Oracle is trying to become as cool as MySQL — it has had something like this for a long time! Now Oracle should add SHOW TABLES too.

Anyway, this is really 11g’s most useful feature so far, though.
