That's good point. I will probably convert the new command to a SQL function.
I was fumbling between a table or a SQL function. Oracle uses v$session_longops to track progression of long running SQL queries which have run for more than 6 seconds. But a function is much better to provide parameters such as the backend pid and a format specification for the output.
