Do you realize that every NIC is a single threaded device?

So if a LISTENER is "talking" to a client, this means that no other LISTENER can be active at that same time.

In addition, a LISTENER only comes into play to make the initial connection between a client & the DB server. After the connection is established, the listener has nothing to do with active sessions.

So, explain again what benefit comes from having multiple LISTENERs. Received on Mon Feb 25 2008 - 20:53:59 CST
