I'm running Oracle Database 10g Release 10.2.0.1.0 on Linux ES4

Every other day, the CPU on the linux box goes to 100% and the process that is taking all the cpu shows to be....

oraclep1 (LOCAL=NO)

This only happens on one node of the RAC and it is the same node every time.

In order to get the server and database back to being responsive we kill the process and all is better.

My question is, how would I go about tracking down the user that is causeing all this?

Thanks,
Billy Bob

What you want to track CPU time ?
Or user activities on DATABASE SERVER like (DML/DDL)?

ps gives you pid
pid that you find in v$process.spid
you join with v$session on v$session.paddr=v$process.addr
then you get session id (v$session.sid), Oracle user name (v$session.username), OS user name (v$session.osuser).

Thanks Michel....I think that is what I am looking for. I'm a newbie to Oracle and still trying to figure out little tricks.

I'm basically just trying to figure out who is causing the load and what they are doing.

I have been killing the process right away as soon as its discovered in order to bring the database back to responsive state, which limits my time to figure out what they are doing. Which leaves me trying to figure out what they WERE doing rather that what the ARE doing.
