Basically, the current application requires information from remote servers. It takes a while to get this information and we use the pipes to advise the application that the data has been fetched. The problem we are experiencing is that we know the pipes are getting overloaded but we don't know why. That's why I want to know how many messages and how big said messages are.

Gopal pointed to the view but, as David said, there isn't enough information in there for me. One of the lads at work found something called OraPiper (I think I got that right) but, judging by the documentation, it does what I don't want to do (receive the message, unpack, repack and send the message back into the pipe).

Anyways, thanks to all for the help and if anyone does think of something, I would be most appreciative.
