RE: Library Cache Lock

John Kanagaraj



We have had many similar situations where we had lib cache locks/pins on a
_table_ - did you notice that all the waiters were queueing up behind
another session that was 'hanging' on a 'row cache lock'? (for this happened
consistently in our siutation). This is a fairly large Oracle Apps 11.5.7
installation - this occurred in a schema that has a number of partitioned
tables and MVs. It is possible that there were partial refreshes of the MVs
occurring at the time of the problem.

In any case, we had a large reduction in the occurrences when we upgraded
from to, and obtained another reduction when we re-arranged
and serialized some background jobs (Apps concurrent managers). A TAR with
Oracle was useless - we were sent on a runaround and passed from one to
another until we dropped the issue (since the pain went away). I did take
some system dumps, but they might have been purged (I can dig around).
