I wrote the following shell script to start multiple sqplus sessions running the same procedure. But is running one procedure after the other and not creating a new session, how do I make my script creat a new session? Thanks in advance.
 [oracle@linux3 scripts]$ 'simulate_workload_with_binds(2000)'

0 [oracle@linux3 scripts]$ 'simulate_workload_with_binds(2000)'
Enter the number of sessions

echo "Enter the number of sessions"
read session

num=0                   # Initialize num
while (( $num < $session ))   # or  while [ num -lt 10 ]

#if exit; is not here there will be no result printed to the screen
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/sqlplus -s admin/limk1234 <<EOF

      echo  -n "$num "
      let num+=1           # Increment num
echo -e "\nAfter loop exits, continue running here"
