Not sure about the likeness. :)
But I do know that if I jack up the priority of the lgwr process the incidence of this message is greatly reduced although not completely eliminated.

The issue I have with the "consolidation of the private redo is taking some time" thing is simply this: which stat or wait tells me it is happening, and by how much?
I'm fundamentally alergic to tuning by "some": either there is a numeric, tallied base for an observation, or it's not worth the surface it's written on! And of course: I'm not directing this at Joel! I've seen the same text in some of the mentioned MOS docs and they indicate it means, essentially, nothing.

My gut feel is that someone forgot to remove a debug message from somewhere in the 11gr2 code and now we have this thing showing up all over the place and meaning essentially nothing!

And there are more. In fact, the 11gr2 alert file is NOTORIOUS for quite a few comments with no WARNING or ERROR tag before them, or any ORA number. Which makes it impossible to accurately make any sense of them, other than by coincidence! Received on Wed Oct 24 2012 - 12:22:05 CEST
