Usage Messages

Usage messages appear onscreen in response to incorrect syntax or missing parameters when you enter dbutility commands. These messages are also written to the log file. If tracing is enabled, these messages are captured in the trace file. See Log and Trace Files. These messages are prefixed by the timestamp hh:mm:ss, where hh is hours, mm is minutes, and ss is seconds.
