Restriction on maximum number of sessions

How can I put a restriction on the maximum number of sessions that a user can have on an Oracle8i database?

    Requires Free Membership to View

The first thing to do is to create a profile that limits the maximum number of sessions a user can have:
CREATE PROFILE user_max_sess_profile
   LIMIT session_per_user 5;
Once the profile has been created, assign this profile to the user:
ALTER USER scott PROFILE user_max_sess_profile;
There are many other options you can configure for the profile. Please look at this document for more details.
