Dear Sir/Madam,

when we ran SELECT statement against CUBE, we got below wait event: resmgr: cpu quantum.

Further, we checked below 2 parameters :

resource_limit            TRUE
resource_manager_plan     SCHEDULER[0x12B943C]:DEFAULT_MAINTENANCE_PLAN

It has been found that these sessions did not get enough CPU to process the request.

Please guide me how to find out how many CPU has been allocated to this database ?

Also, guide me how to analyze how much % of CPU being utilized for a specific session ?


Thank you,
Kesavan

show parameter cpu_count

Not directly possible with Oracle and meaningless: the percentage of CPU used by a session changes
every second, so which figure do you want?
Use an OS tool, see How do I Find Out Linux CPU Utilization?

Michel

Hi Michel,

Thank you for your prompt response.

Further i checked CPU allocated to my database. It is 2.

NAME VALUE
---------- ----------
cpu_count 2 
and at o/s level, i checked below command. It seems 16 CPU has been allocated at server level.

> cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor
processor       : 0
processor       : 1
processor       : 2
processor       : 3
processor       : 4
processor       : 5
processor       : 6
processor       : 7
processor       : 8
processor       : 9
processor       : 10
processor       : 11
processor       : 12
processor       : 13
processor       : 14
processor       : 15

I have one clarification further. yesterday when SELECT query was slow, I checked CPU utilization for corresponding SPID from TOP comamnd. it was showing 99.9 %. So it means, that session was using 99.9 % of that 2 CPU ? or 99.9 % of total 16 CPUs ?

do we have any SQL query to link SID to get CPU usage for that session ? or for corresponding SPID ? ( yes, we have TOP command to see the CPU utilization for it )

Thank you for your time and clarification.

Regards,
Kesavan

The OS command (the same that gives you the 99.9%) will give you the answer.

The statistics "CPU used by this session" will give the cpu used by the session (when it is alive).
Query v$sesstat join to v$statname.

And please, align the column in the result you post.

Michel

It looks as though you have implemented instance caging, which was the subject of my post last week:
http://www.orafaq.com/forum/mv/msg/173397/517432/0/#msg_517432
My tests have shown that it does seem to work. You have cpu_count set to 2, so that one instance will restrict its use to only 2 CPUs at once. Presumably this was deliberate, in order to leave 14 CPUs free for other work.
Note that while instance caging should restrict the CPU usage of background and server processes, if you are running user processes (such as SQL*Plus) on the server, they will run outside the cage.

I am open to correction, but I believe the resource manager controls CPU usage through a cooperative multi-tasking algorithm layered on top of the operating system's pre-emptive multi-tasking algorithm. This means that Oracle processes will voluntarily relinquish the CPU before being pre-emptively context switched off it.
