users logging on to unix boxes

I have been asked to write a unix script to log and report all users logging on to our unix boxes as either the root or oracle users only on a 24 hour basis.
This should trap the logon and logoff time,if possible what they are doing and their username.

Thanks in Advance

Take a look at the man page for "last". The output contains
login name, tty, host or IP logging in from, time in and time
out. There are also many options so this is a good starting
place.

Change your root and oracle passwords and only give those passwords to trusted users.
