My guess is it's either pmon or smon. Is it happening like every few minutes?  

Put a database logon trigger in place and capture the program name.

Subject: constant logging in as / as sysdba ?  

I am trying to figure out what is logging in constantly as / as sysdba. We are on Solaris iwth Oracle 10.1. We are using Solaris clustering(this is OS clustering and not RAC). However, I turned the cluster off and then turned Oracle on manually. The / as sysdba connection continues to happen every minute.  

By default Oracle logs all / as sysdba connections. I then increased my auditing to try to find out what is going on.  

So I did  

audit all by access

and I set my audit_trail to the OS.  

I am I am getting is the following:  

Wed Apr 15 14:54:17 2009
STATUS: 0     The session does not appear to do anything. I would think audit all by access would catch this. To test it, I logged in as / as sysdba and shutdown the database. my actions were logged.  

We do not have kron jobs running. anyone experience this before ? anything about solaris? could it be an oracle process logging in?
