Re: DBWR pegged out
Date: Tue, 8 Mar 2011 09:59:13 -0800 (PST)
I'd be asking myself (and oracle perhaps) two questions: 1) why am I writing to TEMP at all and 2) if sessions need to spill to temp on 11.2 why are they not doing so in the direct path?
BTW, what class of server is this?

Subject: DBWR pegged out
after oracle suggested bumping up db_writer_processes from 2 to 4, at times it
is still getting pegged out. "write complete waits" will become a top time
drilling down will show:
SID User Wait state/time Waiting Location 23 db_user In waiting (2ms) write complete waits, TEMP datafile:604 30 db_user In waiting (88ms) write complete waits, TEMP datafile:604 179 db_user In waiting (101ms) write complete waits, TEMP datafile:604 189 db_user In waiting (0ms) write complete waits, TEMP datafile:604 354 db_user In waiting (109ms) write complete waits, TEMP datafile:604 1532 db_user In waiting (6ms) write complete waits, TEMPdatafile:604
and diff users will fall in out of these write complete waits. i always see
TEMP... not any other dfiles.
also during these times... ora_ckpt will start blocking other sessions. is this I/O contention? any suggestions?
dbwr_io_slaves is set to 0.
this is 184.108.40.206 on solaris sparc 64.
