So why would I have them if I'm not using advanced queuing? Is Oracle using AQ on it's own?

The reason I'm asking is because yesterday one of our dba's dropped a tablespace with a 30g datafile in it, them manually rm'ed the file from the OS (Solaris 10). The space never got released so we went looking for a process that might have had the file open. We found it was still opened by ora_q001. Received on Wed Jan 07 2009 - 16:19:12 CST
