Who is logged into the database?

Here is a shell script that will list all the Oracle users that are logged in to all databases on your HP-UX machine.

#!/bin/ksh
export ORAENV_ASK=NO
ps -ef | grep -i oracle | grep "LOCAL=" | grep -v grep  |cut -d"?" -f2- | cut -
d"oracle" -f2- | cut -c6- | cut -d" " -f-1 | sort -u |while read ORACLE_SID

do
  . oraenv
# echo $ORACLE_SID
  sqlplus -s internal << EOF
    set verify off 
    set feedback 0
    set lines 133
    set pages 0
    column osuser format a18
    col name noprint new_value dbname
    select name from v$database;

    select '&dbname' , s.osuser
    from v$session s, v$process p
    where
      s.paddr = p.addr and
      s.type != 'BACKGROUND' and
      s.osuser is not null and
      s.osuser !='oracle' and
      s.audsid != userenv('SESSIONID') and
    union all
    select '&dbname' , s.schemaname
    from v$session s, v$process p
    where
      s.paddr = p.addr and
      s.type != 'BACKGROUND' and
      s.osuser is not null and
      s.osuser ='oracle' and
      s.audsid != userenv('SESSIONID') ;
    exit
EOF
