RE: Effect of number of extents on Oracle I/O performance

I currently have a 9i DB in production having objects with extents in multiples of 1000s, haven't dealt with any performance issue with this. I use LMT. Perhaps you could elaborate with an example.
Effect of number of extents on Oracle I/O performance From: "Joel Wittenmyer" <joel.wittenmyer_at_templarstable.com> Date: 14-03-2009 02:53
In Oracle 8 and 9 we saw that at 1000 extents performance began to drop off. At 2K extents it leapt, laughing maniacally off a cliff. I know that 10g is supposed to handle much more than that without a problem. Tens or hundreds of thousands perhaps? Does anyone have experience with just what the new threshold might be? Or is the architecture such now that it is no longer a consideration?
Thanks in Advance.
