Hi Tony, this is a warning message, informational, that the highly privileged SYS account was used by someone at that day and time.  Given its 03.00 today, my educated guess is that you have some scheduled job (in cron or Oracle job scheduler) that runs under the SYS permissions.

Bad idea.  Bad.

The context of the message suggests your database is being monitored with Oracle Enterprise Manager, or the newer equivalent (grid 11, cloud 12).

Do you have an experienced DBA available to walk this through?  It's neither a quick fix, nor appropriate for a public forum.
