RE: Determining the program name from an after logon trigger

I'm not an expert but if you have access to the application you can use dbms_application_info and add program information to v$session. Not sure if you can do it in 8.1.7.
The DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO package allows programs to add information to the V$SESSION and V$SESSION_LONGOPS views to make tracking of session activities more accurate.

The only way that I know how to do this is to create an after logon trigger on the username under which this program connects. I have done this successfully before to look at performance bottlenecks for the ETL loads. The code for the trigger is:
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER <username>.trace_user after logon on siebel.schema
if user = '<username>' then execute immediate 'alter session set timed_statistics=true'; execute immediate 'alter session set max_dump_file_size=unlimited'; execute immediate 'alter session set events ''10046 trace name context forever, level 8'''; end if;
My problem in this case is that the report program uses the same username as the ETL and I do not want to create and I do not want to create traces for those processes. The sys_context('USERENV',...) function can return a good bit of information about the current process but, as far as I can tell, not the name of the calling program. Is there any easy way to do this? (This is Oracle 188.8.131.52 running on Solaris/SunOS 5.9).
