A very brief update.
One of the smaller (and nicer) part of ORA_MEM package is ora_cpu.pl utility that shows graphically what active db processes are doing at the moment … be it running SQL, accessing db object or waiting for something.

Previously, this tool was only available for AIX, but now I ported it to Linux as well.
If you run it as:
