Dear Sir I execute the following query

WHERE NAME IN ('parse time cpu', 'parse time elapsed',
'parse count (hard)', 'CPU used by this session' );
---------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
CPU used by this session 0
parse time cpu 0
parse time elapsed 0
parse count (hard) 461305

Please look at parse count (hard) which is at higher size
My observations are Application is not using bind variables
and i also check that cursor_sharing=EXACT so the statements with slight differences are not sharing exectution plans
Should i change it to Force or Similar?
Would it be beneficial to reduce hard parsing ultimately causing impact on performance?

thanx in advance

First try to get the application to use bind variables. If you cannot, benchmark the app with different CURSOR_SHARING settings to see which one works best for you.
