Ignore the "gc cr request" waits. We know the root cause of it. That's a multi-starrer movie with parallel queries, fast object checkpoints, switches and RAID-5 in a starring role.

I need to know more about the particular latch "KCL gc element parent latch" that seems to accompany those waits some of the time but not always, plus not as long a wait period. Non-existent documentation on that wait. All I gathered is that wait has been removed in 11g.

 "gc cr request" waits -
- Check your query - you're query large data ?

  • Check traffic at InterConnect (private) - Do you use Gigabit NIC?
