 Well, Users are happy. but in the morning when they run large batch jobs, 
yeah couple of guys do face some problems. As per my observations ,highest 
 So have done rebuilding of indexes as Sequential reads can be high because 
of the FTS on the tables. Even for the 40GB Database, we have only 250 MB 
SGA so which I am planning to increase. In normal day operation no query is 
getting locked or taking very long to execute.
 But with the help of OEM, these guys can see that ratio is LOW and that is 
where I have to take care. I think increase the size to 400 MB for now and 
then reanalyze and rebuilding the indexes will help me to see this down. 
 This is what I have planned for now. 
 v$system_event has following high waits. Hope after my operations it will 
be down.
db file scattered read 40262440 3990102
SQL*Net message from client 98729463 8838908158
SQL*Net message to client 98729537 19876
db file sequential read 224733173 15513002
