Hello, listers

We are facing rather strange situation... When accessing table for analyze or to export table, we are seeing "db file sequential read" wait event. V$session_wait file# is 2, that is - UNDO tablespace. Because of this analyze or export take forever to complete.

Why would analyze or export access UNDO tablespace? There are definitely no transactions at all on the system going on at the time of export/analyze.

Thanks for all insights,
Vladimir Barac
