    Typically, when you are talking about a trace file, you are talking about a SQL Trace. The Trace file will contain the queries being executed as well as timing information. To view this trace file in a readable format, you will probably use tkprof.

    I have a trace file which I was asked to look at. I am not sure for what.
    Does it show any errors?
