Insert contention on RAC
Date: Wed, 25 Jun 2008 15:18:39 -0400
To borrow the style from some MetaLink notes--
Fact: Oracle 10.2.0.1.0 Fact: RedHat 3 Fact: 3 node RAC
Many concurrent sessions inserting one row at a time into the same table. On first run, table in ASSM tablespace, about 50% of database service time was gc buffer busy waits. Built a new tablespace with manual segment management, re-created table with three freelist groups and 4 freelists. Next run showed >90% of service time was enq: HW contention; total run time was slightly higher than it was with ASSM.. Re-created table again, allocated three 4 GB extents, one for each instance. Current run is still showing high HW contention waits.
Might I have too many freelists? Other than forcing all sessions to use the same RAC instance, is there anything else I can do to reduce these waits?
