oradebug tracefile_name

I have enabled tracing in a session and now I want to retrieve the name of the tracefile.

Ex: my session has sid 335.

How do I retrieve trace file name from sqlplus ?

select pid from v$process where addr in
(select paddr from v$session where sid=335);

PID
----------
47

Now I can use oradebug to reveal tracefile name

SQL> oradebug setorapid 47
Unix process pid: 1372408, image: oracle@dbsrv01 (TNS V1-V3)
SQL> oradebug tracefile_name
/u01/app/oracle/admin/LSC01/udump/lsc01_ora_1372408.trc
