*What an odd behavior I have come across when the the value is left for auto tune (on 10gR2), I have observed that the value goes to a higher value and it was causing optimize to favor FTS.*

In your case, which value are you mentioning? _db_file_exec_read_count vs. _db_file_optimizer_read_count?

Oracle does not auto-tune _db_file_optimizer_read_count. Auto-tuned MBRC is only applied to _db_file_exec_read_count.

On my systems(10.2.0.1 and 11.1.0.6), _db_file_optimizer_read_count was always 8.
