I never tested it, but it promises all your manager asks for.
As always, if it sounds promising, make your lawyer talk to oracle

We need to produce a "log" of sql statements--along with the
user, IP (or host) they are coming from, and the sql
statement--for another team to analyze. My manager does not
want to user auditing because of the uncertainty of the load
on this critical database. He suggested doing a SPAM port
capture. I opened a ticket with our SAs and they wanted to
know what ports. I gave them the listener ports. The SA ran
a tcpdump (said it was verbose), but it didn't give any
information on users, app servers, or sql statements. I
really don't know what I'm doing here, just passing
information between my manager and SAs. So, questions:
1. Will tcpdump give me what my manager is asking for? If
yes, what are the options the SA should use?0
2. Is there a better way to retrieve this information without
using database auditing?
Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
