There are a few dedicated B.O. sessions, and reports share these sessions from the application server. So the session doesn't stop when the report is over, hence i can't use the logoff trigger.

I agree, there should. In fact, there is, but their focus is on making reports. Performance tuning is not part of their skill-set or scope. Making a performance trend figure of their reports is way out of their line of thought. Performance tuning isn't anyones responsibility, so the DBA ( Default Blame Acceptor ?) gets the phonecall.

I agree that this question is perhaps more a B.O. question than an Oracle question, but i haven't found many usefull answers in the B.O. community (e.g. the BOB -business objects board and other sites). So i put this into the oracle community, in the hope that someone else ran into this problem. How do you control the performance of the akward B.O. reports?
