Any TKPROF GUI tool to read the trace files in Oracle database?

I have several trace files generated in oracle database, due to
the tracing what we have enabled.

We can use the TKPROF command line utility and read the raw files in the UDUMP directory.

Is there any TKPROF GUI tool which can read the files and show the tracing info in a nice report layout. May be it can show just the user running SQL and skip the recursive SQL's.

Looking for any free TKPROF GUI utility ?  or may be any GUI tool which can read the trace files and give us in a nice report layout.

Is there an option to completely turn OFF (recursive SQL's) while generating the trace output using the TraceFile Aanlyzer (TRCANLZR)  ?

You could just try Oracle SQL Developper. It is free and will format a raw trace file as you expect. Using it is simple: just start SQLDeveloper, then drag your trace files and drop them on the SQLDeveloper window.
