I can't unravel this mystery, but I got a similar behavior. I started DB control at about 8:30 this morning because of your request. This is also Oracle 11g but on Solaris SPARC 10 on an Sun Blade 2000 with 2 1.2 GHz CPUs.
The system was busy for about 10 hours with an average of 50%. On Solaris I have one oracle process per connect, and this process has consumed more than 630 minutes of CPU time now.

So there seems to be some big work to be done after init. Wait and see, if your system calms down after a while. Received on Wed Aug 27 2008 - 15:02:11 CDT
