I was checking Oracle 12c again, because of a beta exam end of october, and noticed something strange. This time I decided to install 12c Grid software first to use the 12c ASM for the 12c database. After installing ASM, I tried to check the disks available in ASM...

Automatic Shared Memory Management problem ?

Bas Klaassen - Thu, 2013-03-14 05:30
From time to time one of out 10g databases ( seems to 'hang' Our monitoring shows a 'time out' on different checks and when trying to connect using sql, the sql session is hanging. No connection is possible. A few days ago, something like this happened again. Instead of bouncing the database, I decided to look for clues to find out why the database was 'hanging'.
