Q

Removing sessions where status=killed

In v$session some records are status=killed. It increses number of sessions. Say the database is working fine under 150 sessions. How do I remove the sessions where status is killed?

When an inactive session has been terminated, the STATUS of the session in the V$SESSION view is KILLED. The row...

for the terminated session is removed from V$SESSION after the user attempts to use the session again and receives the ORA-00028 message.

If that's not practical, you can kill the session's server process at the OS level. Use kill on Unix or Linux, or orakill on Windows.
