sdstuberCommented:
it will be in your oracle home "bin" directory

it will be called tkprof

for example


/oracle/product/11.2/bin/tkprof


if your oracle home bin is part of your default PATH then you can simply enter

tkprof  at the command line and it will print the banner

If you will search the E-E knowledge base, you will find many articles on how to use the tool, in addition to the Oracle site forums.

If you have a UNIX or Linux server, and if you are logged in to the server as the owner of the Oracle software, you should have the aliases: $ORACLE-HOME and $PATH already defined.  So, you can simply type "tkprof" and it should start.  Your $PATH should include the /bin folder of your $ORACLE-HOME.  (Sorry, I'm trying this on my new iPad and that keyboard doesn't have an underscore character, so I used a dash instead.)

I found the underscore now on my iPad keyboard (_) and a number of other non-numerical and non-alphabetic characters also. After clicking the ".123" key to bring up the numeric keypad, the "#+=" key there brings up a keyboard of special characters.
