Checking if Script is Already Running
Mar 28, 2011 10:38 AM
I am writing a batch file that will fire off an Oracle Stored Procedure using something along these lines:
IF "%%~nxV" EQU "FILE1" sqlplus username/password@prod @c:\folder\sql\sqlfile.sql
If there some way to know if SQLFILE.SQL is already running so we don't call the process twice? Preferabbly from a batch file / command prompt.

You might set specific action or client info in dbms_application_info and then eventually look for it.
The other option is using global context or a table.
BTW, I'd move it to procedure itself (to let it being processed just once) or consider using queues/scheduler_jobs.
You have not mentioned which DB version you're using.
