I need to disable generation of trc files. They are chewing up most of my disk space and I'm really not even sure what they are for. There are lots of posting on this, but none really solve my problem.
In posting https://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Oracle/10.x/Q_22712202.html
I found the advice: "Comment sql_trace in your init.ora file and restart the db." That worked for the poster who is running my same version (10g).
However, I don't have "sql_trace" in my init.ora file. Also, I have two init.ora files in: /oracle/dbs/init.ora and /oracle/srvm/admin/init.or
a. Both have the similar dates and I don't know which is the 'live' one.
