The glogin file is a script that is run every time someone does an initial login through SQL*Plus on the machine.

There is no expected commands in there.  In fact, your file is empty, as all of those lines are comments.

Be aware, that it only applies to logins initiated on that machine.  Any remote login will not run those commands.

Think of it as a global environment for all users (on that machine).  I commonly set the session arraysize to a higher/better value, to set a common prompt, or to change default tracing.

I usually use this file to change the defaults for: linesize, pagesize, etc.  This file is used by SQL*Plus , but only by SQL*Plus, and since Oracle is encouraging us to move to other applications for most tasks other than starting, stopping or upgrading the database, any commands that you add to this file probably will not get used very often.

What is your question regarding this file?
