RE: Library Cache and Share wait on Latch - Version Count Huge

Thanks for your suggestion.
I am very sorry due the bad application we will not be able to change SIMILAR to FORCE.
So I have to clear the Histograms
I this METHOD_OPT from AUTO to REPEAT will help me.
I will check on the dbms_stats.get_param and change it to REPEAT if no impact.

Get rid of the histograms or change the CURSOR_SHARING away from SIMILAR (to FORCE for example if you need it).
There's a bug which number I don't remember where CURSOR_SHARING = SIMILAR combined with histograms will cause a huge amount of new child cursors to be generated. And the bad thing is, not even the V$SQL_SHARED_CURSOR shows what's wrong in 10g, in 11g they've added a new HASH_MATCH_FAILED condition for that.
I personally don't like cursor_sharing=similar anyway and also I don't like having histograms being created without my knowledge, so you should change your default METHOD_OPT from from AUTO to REPEAT, that way Oracle only refreshes these histograms which already have been created (by you) and doesn't create new ones based on its "clever" logic:
SQL> select dbms_stats.get_param('METHOD_OPT') from dual;
FOR ALL COLUMNS SIZE AUTO <<--- better to set this to REPEAT
Of course first you need to manually get rid of the histograms that were automatically created by the AUTO option...
Greetings. When I check the wait events recently for few days Library Cache and Share Pool wait got the very huge value.
When i check the V$SQLAREA few sql have very huge versions more than 3000.
My Database version is 10g Rel2 10.2.0.4 on Redhat Linux AS4 with update 4.
CURSOR_SHARING set to SIMILAR and OPTIMIZER_MODE=CHOOSE.
This is happening only recently and is it related to Automatic Statistics done on 10g Rel 2.
Please let me know how to check and avoid it.
