What would cause the Session Browser to disconnect from a Database after a certain amount of time. I’m not sure of the time because it always happens when I am away from my desk. However, it is only one Database that this happens with. The other Databases I’m connected to don’t disconnect. So it would seem that it is something specific to that Database, maybe a parameter or profile setting.
Each user in the database is assigned a profile. Profiles can disconnect you after a period or inactivity or a variety of other things.
If they are searching on exe name, rename Toad.exe to froggy.exe and maybe you will be lucky. If you have active something that rely on inactivity, then John has explained your cause.
However, has to be sure if inactivity of any connection (from SQL*Plus for instance) is making the same disconnection or just “third party tools”.
