Are you working with your DBA on this?

Not quite sure if you are understanding the concepts correctly.

Oracle uses locking mechanisms to manage concurrency. Most of the time it is transactions involved that lock resources that other transactions are trying to access. At times there can be some funky things with space in blocks not only data and index but perhaps other types of blocks. Received on Sun Mar 08 2009 - 15:21:38 CDT
