From sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL> show parameter open_cursors

Or from any dba


SQL> select name, value from v$parameter where name like '%cursor%';

note on privileges...

SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE
or
select any dictionary
or
direct grant to v$parameter is sufficient.

you don't need DBA privileges to query the above info.
also note,  "show parameter" simlply issues a select against v$parameter for you and formats the results
so, if you don't have one or more of the above privileges, it won't work either.

select value from v$parameter where name='open_cursors';

To see the number of the opened cursors use:

select count(*) from v$open_cursor;

By users:

set trimspool on
set linesize 1000
break on report
comp sum of curs on report
select SUBSTR(User_Name,1,20) User_Name, SID, count(*) Curs from v$open_cursor group by User_Name,
SID order by User_Name, SID;

Hi rutgermons,

It is noted by sdstuber that you don't need DBA privs to see that view, however, it is unlikely that you can see that view if you are not a DBA, so you may have to ask your DBA for that info.

I don't condone connecting / as sysdba for every little option, but meant only to provide 2 options in the answer, and I have a bit of a habit of using / as sysdba since often asker's will take suggestions of system/manager literally when "manager" is not their password.
