You do not have any understanding of keep and recycle pools at all. Read Tom Kyte's web site or post a question there. Problem with you is you have no idea of reality, if vendor could fix the problem, it won't be an issue at all. In many compaines people get stuck with whatever vendor provides, yet same time management wants to improve performance, so all one can do from DBA's perspective is to figure how to add more memory, more CPU's etc. That is reality. Many years ago, I used to work in an environment where company's developemnt group will develop all the applications and you can ask them to tume the application without much problem, but that is not true in all the shops.

Also, using WIDNOWS'S AWE one can go beyound 4GB. That was my original question which you have
no undesratnding. Received on Sun Jul 01 2007 - 16:53:09 CDT
