RE: Who and What is using the shared pool

In this case I would suggest to Lisa that she uses the reloads figure. Also that she looks at the trace files for objects that have failed to load and use that information to provide candidates for pinning. However, I would gently disagree with you that frequent loads are bad per se or that they are the best indicator of pinning candidates. I would suggest that an object that is loaded 300 times and executed 300 times might be less of a candidate for pinning that an object that has been loaded 200 times and executed 2000 times. I would argue that it is the objects executed most frequently that are the ones you really need to keep in the pool. I would welcome any other angles on this.

Have Oracle given a reason for dropping this column? Was it providing misinformation? I will have a chase around Metalink myself. Does anyone else know how to get this information. Is it a join on hash columns? I will have a play when time allows.

all opinions are worth [at most] what you paid for them

Actually, loading is the action you'd like to avoid. Anything being load frequently should be pinned.
