Oracle listener

Oracle listener

A part of the Oracle DBMS that "listens" for users connecting to the database. It directs the queries to a function that either creates a dedicated server process for each user or to a shared multithreaded function that handles many users. The latter method may be chosen by the administrator to conserve memory.
