Subject External files Current timestamp

I am trying to check the performance monitoring of a procedure. For that
at various levels in the procedure, I am writing to an external file. I
am also logging the time the insert statement was fired to write into
the external file using current_timestamp system variable. However all
the records into the external table the timestamp value doesn't vary at
all. All the values appear the same.

The following is the external table query

create table portfolioextern external file


(ID CHAR(16),operationcompleted char(64), PROCNAME VARCHAR(32), LOGDATE

The sample insert query that is fired within the procedure at various
levels in it.



All the values in the LOGDATE column are same though the procedure takes
an hour plus to complete.
