That makes sense. Maximum files are set at 200 and file# 2 in v$tempfiles corresponds to the temporary tablespace that the application uses.

What are the maximum files for the DB set to? 200? If so, this ought to be your second tempfile. I have seen that in other pleces, not completely sure it is how it works in the 10046 report.

        I am attempting to interpret a 10046 trace, looking at a line that says:         

        WAIT #1: nam='direct path read' ela= 0 p1=202 p2=955893 p3=16         

        As I understand it, p1 is the file number and p2 is the block number,

        but my database does not have a file number 202. What am I missing
