Find long-running queries

Get read, write times and file directories from your Oracle database to determine long-running queries.

This script will get read/write times and file directories from your Oracle database. It proved useful to my developers...

to determine long-running query problems. Developers could now see if the DB was a major factor in query performance and also see the sqltext being run from a function call. It has been tested on Oracle 9.1.0.1, 9.2.0.2.1 and 9.2.0.4.0.

SELECT d.name file_name, 
d.blocks, 
f.phywrts, 
f.phyrds, 
f.readtim, 
f.writetim, 
t.name tablespace_name, 
f.phywrts/d.blocks wrts_per_block, 
f.phyrds/d.blocks rds_per_block 
FROM v$filestat f, 
v$datafile d, 
sys.ts$ t 
WHERE f.file#=d.file# 
AND d.blocks >0 
AND t.ts#=d.ts# 
UNION ALL 
SELECT d.name file_name, 
d.blocks, 
f.phywrts, 
f.phyrds, 
f.readtim, 
f.writetim, 
t.name tablespace_name,

FROM v$tempstat f, 
v$tempfile d, 
sys.ts$ t 
WHERE f.file#=d.file# 
AND d.blocks >0 
AND t.ts#=d.ts# 

CREATE OR REPLACE 
FUNCTION getusername(sidval number) return varchar2 is 
username varchar2(256); 
begin 
select username into username from v$session where sid = sidval; 
return username; 
end;

SELECT DISTINCT /*+ORDERED*/ 
sql.sql_text, 
sql.address, 
sql.hash_value, 
0 piece,

getusername(sid)username 
FROM v$session s,
