select * from dba_jobs will list all jobs including their next scheduled time

If this_date or this_sec is not null   then they are running right now


you can also use dba_jobs_running view, but it's just the same thing with a filter on the "this" columns so it will only show info for jobs executing right now

actually, it filters on the existence of a lock in v$lock, but the effect is the same

thanks. I was running this query and did not get any data.

SELECT r.sid, r.job, r.this_date,
       r.this_sec, SUBSTR(what,1,40) what
  FROM dba_jobs_running r,dba_jobs j
 WHERE r.job = j.job;

if you need to maintain a history of past job executions,  then use dbms_scheduler instead of dbms_job  (10g and above only)


or, if you stick with dbms_job  then you should modify your job scripts to include logging to some table
dbms_job itself won't tell you anymore than the last time it ran and the next time it should run
