IF any user is connected as sysdba, then the user is shown as "SYS";
1.How to find out who the actual user , connected as sysdba ?

2. What is the query to know what all users are connected, what time the connection was established to a db and how long ??

1) You can connect by ANY username(any string) to database:
>sqlplus /nolog

SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Wed Jun 28 13:42:33 2006

SQL> connect as sysdba
Enter user-name: qaw
Enter password:
Connected to an idle instance.

So, I think that it is generally impossible to see what user-name was introduced, because generally so username can to be unexistent in database. When You are connect as SYSDBA, Oracle simply opens SYS session.

2)All information what you are need are in the v$session.
