Hi Yechiel,

If this is 10g *and* the application uses DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO to set Module/Program/Action or the Client_ID, you can always use DBMS_MONITOR to selectively start the trace. Is this a Connection Pooled instance? That will also change the way trace would work as it would be difficult to detect *which* session is executing the SQL in question.... In other words, YMMV.
