If the display_cursor doesn't work because it was aged out use display_awr and pass in the sql_id and plan_hash_value from today's run.

Two ways

1) v$sql.sql_profile
2) select * from from(dbms_xplan.display_cursor('<sql_id>', <child_number>);

1. Is there a way to determine if an SQL profile (part of the tuning pack) is actually being used?  The dba_sql_profiles view shows that the profile in question is 'ENABLED', but we had a performance issue with the query this morning that shouldn't have happened if the profile was working.
2. The database was restarted last night.  Does the profile continue to be applied after a restart?

Answers or links to documentation with the answers are greatly appreciated.
