Purpose

SYS_GUID generates and returns a globally unique identifier (RAW value) made up of
16 bytes. On most platforms, the generated identifier consists of a host identifier, a
process or thread identifier of the process or thread invoking the function, and a
nonrepeating value (sequence of bytes) for that process or thread.
Examples
The following example adds a column to the sample table hr.locations, inserts
unique identifiers into each row, and returns the 32-character hexadecimal
representation of the 16-byte RAW value of the global unique identifier:
ALTER TABLE locations ADD (uid_col RAW(32));
UPDATE locations SET uid_col = SYS_GUID();
SELECT location_id, uid_col FROM locations;
LOCATION_ID UID_COL
