Re: DBWR - How Many is Too Many?

Great points both,

I'd also look at the i/o figures in your statspack report, I can't remember
if 9i gives the histograms but it certainly will give you the average IO
times experienced by your database. Often times SAN people can't/don't
measure time but utilisation.
