What would you like to know about Oracle?

You mean accepting the connection? I think you can get all accepts that Oracle 
would issue, but I don't know if you will get the remote address in the logs. 
You also cannot tell it that you want accepts of a specific socket.

You might want to spend some time looking at Oracle from strace. That is about 
the view of the world from the Linux Audit System. If you can't find anything 
worth logging from that, it most likely means that you'd want Oracle to be 
patched to send meaningful events to the audit system.
