no need to purchase any fancy product - AFAIK you are running Oracle on Linux
and so you can do all of that with Linux.
Getting the SQL statements (and any other metadata) with SystemTap:
Just modify the scripts according to your needs (e.g. logging in a particular
format) and that's it :)
P.S.: The overhead is also very little as you only probe on specific C
functions (and not all).

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
Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
