          Hi Sunena,

           

          Dump_dest basically refers to a set of parameters that Oracle uses and infers to the location of Oracle logs and trace files, there are so many types of Dump_dest available in oracle such as:

          Background_dump_dest

          User_dump_dest

          Core_dump_dest

          and etc..

           

          For more detail information, have a look at the following thread which is been discussed before:

          Hope this helps!

          Thanks &

          Best Regards,
