Re: Temp usage on Linux vs solaris

Recommendations on triaging:
1) What are the parameter differences (anything that could impact execution plans)
2) For a given query with the issue, look at the before and after plans and try and figure out what is causing this (get a 10053 trace and diff it)

Once you get #2 and look into the cause for the diff, then it can be analyzed on what could be causing it.

Understand that the increased temp usage is the effect (symptom) of plans changing and you want to get to the root cause of why that is the case. If you have AWR data for both systems you can look at {sql_id, plan_hash_values} comparisons assuming all the objects are identical.
