Hi,
You can check v$sql for a PARSING_SCHEMA_NAME (user) and order by LAST_ACTIVE_TIME

Thank you Franck for your response. The SQL_FULLTEXT is giving a vague idea of what the user may have done something like " insert into sys.wri$_optstat_opr (operation, target, start_time, end_time) valu  "

How do we interpret it? Can we actually get back the query as it was executed?

You see statements typed by the users as well as recursive statements (from a pl/sql procedure for exemple)
Not sure, but sys.wri$_optstat_opr may come from the call to dbms_stats.gather_system_stats

Thank you Franck,

I now understood what you said. But is there any way we can filter only the full commands and not the recursive statements?
