How do you connect the details of the two tables V$SESSION and V$SQL?
Using V$SESSION and V$SQL, one can get an idea of the current SQL statement a particular user is executing. In order to join these two views together, you need to link them on the SQL statement's "address" and "hash value". This can be done with the following query:
SELECT se.sid,se.username,sa.sql_text FROM v$session se, v$sqlarea sa WHERE se.sql_address=sa.address AND se.sql_hash_value=sa.hash_value;
SELECT se.sid,se.username,sa.sql_text FROM v$session se, v$sqlarea sa WHERE se.prev_sql_addr=sa.address AND se.prev_hash_value=sa.hash_value;
