dbconsole or it's big brother EM can do it, you can look at all sessions, pick out cursors and specific SQL to your hearts content. There is probably a port 550x or 180x access through your browser. Try https://yourhostname:5500/em You may need to know the system login or equivalent. We could give more advice if we knew what kind of host you have, like where to look for the information about ports, or how to see if it is running.
