Query for overshooting tasks/stories

I want to query for all tasks/stories where the total time logged by users is more than 'estimated' time for that task/story.

Using the out-of-the-box Jira, I'm not aware of a way of doing this. I don't seem able to get the logged time in a JQL and I also don't think that you can compare time fields

Oh. So, there are no fields from which I can check the 'estimated' and 'remaining' time ?
And how to proceed with out-of-the-box Jira ?

You have access to the Original Estimate field and you could query for issues where it is less than / greater than a value, so 

originalEstimate < "1w"


originalEstimate >= "3h"

but you can't query where it is less than another field.

Was your last question asking about other solutions, not using OOTB? If so, that would involve Jira add-ons, which I know nothing about.

This solution works for me !

Yes I wanted to use OOTB, without the external add-ons.
