But it basically stops there, and does not provide the information the OP requested. It's likely the OP will need to 'roll his own' utility or methodology by creating a table to contain the desired data then populating that table with each call to dbms_pipe.pack_message. This, then, creates a possible maintenance nightmare as every call to dbms_pipe.unpack_message would require a delete from this same table for the record matching the unpacked pipe messge. Absent that consideration the OP could then query his home-grown table to find, at any moment, the expected contents of the desired pipe (given, of course, that all of the inserts succeeded and none of the deletes failed).
