Introduction: 

Oracle Alert Log location

Question: 

Where are the Oracle Alert logs for the different versions of Oracle used by eHealth?

Environment:  

All supported eHealth versions and their supported operating systems

Answer: 

In Oracle 10g (Prior to 6.3.2) the alert log is located at:

Unix:
$ORACLE_HOME/admin/bdump/$ORACLE_SID>/alert_$ORACLE_SID.log

Windows:
%ORACLE_HOME%/admin/bdump/%ORACLE_SID%/alert_%ORACLE_SID%.log

 

In Oracle 11g (6.3.2 to 6.3.3) the location of the alert log changed to:

 

Unix:
$ORACLE_HOME/diagnostics/diag/rdbms/$ORACLE_SID(in lowercase)/$ORACLE_SID/trace/alert_$ORACLE_SID.log

Windows:
%ORACLE_HOME%/diagnostics/diag/rdbms/%ORACLE_SID%/%ORACLE_SID%/trace/alert_%ORACLE_SID%.log
