It is used for uniquely identifying any sql statement in the database when it gets executed. We can use it to find sql statements by querying with that id.

The docs are your friend:

For example for V$SESSION:
SQL_ID       VARCHAR2(13)       SQL identifier of the SQL statement that is currently being executed

Hi,

It is a way to identify statements, by hashing the sql text.

See:
http://blog.tanelpoder.com/2009/02/22/sql_id-is-just-a-fancy-representation-of-hash-value/

Note that as with any hashing function, two different sql statements may have the same sql_id - but that should be very very rare.

Regards,
Franck.
