Joel, Create an ON LOGON database trigger and capture all logons into a new database table. You can capture all of the info in the v$session table, so you can see everyone and everyplace a connection is coming from. Run this for a couple of weeks to see all the connections. I do this in all my databases.

I have a manager who has asked if there is a way to track what 'application' is logging in before changing the password so that the change can be smoother. (either change the password in the app or create a new account for the app). The second part is can you track what application is attempting to log in to a schema where the password has already been changed. The version of Oracle are 9, and 10. A case where the password has already been changed happens to be Oracle9. Privileged/Confidential Information may be contained in this message or attachments hereto.
