Using Client Information

Many databases allow applications to store client information associated with a connection. For example, the following types of information can be useful for database administration and monitoring purposes:
*Name of the application currently using the connection.
*User ID for whom the application using the connection is performing work. The user ID may be different than the user ID that was used to establish the connection.
*Host name of the client on which the application using the connection is running.
*Product name and version of the driver on the client.
*Additional information that may be used for accounting or troubleshooting purposes, such as an accounting ID.
