RE: Know anyone?

1. Iostat looks good. Vmstat indicated memory contention, because RedHat
cache has it all.
2. Sar indicates that all looks good.
3. Been all over it and used it together with Oracle docs to setup server.
4. Great script and I am going to use it next spike.  Thanks.

Also, I have sarcheck installed on the server and the analysis from it is
that the server can support a substantial increase in workload before
impending CPU, memory, or disk bottlenecks.

I've tried to tune the vm parameters and it help changing the pagecache
parameter to '1 2 7' instead of default '1 15 30'.  Before I did that I had
a huge load average all the time.  I've also played with bdflush without any
gain in perfomance.

Thanks,
Magnus

Sounds a similar config to what I have.

1. Have you run vmstat and iostat during that period? 
Be interesting to see what it shows (vmstat 5, iostat
5 and iostat -x 5 or 10 second intervals).

2. Have you looked at sar output?  Should be a bunch
of sar files in /var/log/sa.

3. Check
http://www.puschitz.com/TuningLinuxForOracle.shtml for
more information.

4. Personally, I also dump all active SQL statements
to see which is taking the most time and investigate
further.  Here is my version of the script:

dump_sql.sql

set serveroutput on size 1000000
declare
   num_rows integer := 0;
 
begin
 
   for recSQL_HASH in
      (select username, last_call_et,
       to_char(logon_time, 'YYYYMMDD hh24miss')
logon_time,
       sid, serial#, sql_hash_value
       from v$session
       where username is not null
       and status = 'ACTIVE'
       and sql_hash_value > 0
       order by last_call_et)
   loop
     
dbms_output.put_line('________________________________________________');
      dbms_output.put_line('username last_call_et
logon_time sid serial# hash');
      dbms_output.put_line(recSQL_HASH.username||' '||
                           recSQL_HASH.last_call_et||'
'||
                           recSQL_HASH.logon_time||'
'||
                           recSQL_HASH.sid||' '||
                           recSQL_HASH.serial#||' '||
                          
recSQL_HASH.sql_hash_value);
     
dbms_output.put_line('________________________________________________');
      for recSQL_TEXT in
         (select sql_text
          from v$sqltext
          where hash_value =
recSQL_HASH.sql_hash_value
          order by piece)
      loop
         dbms_output.put_line(recSQL_TEXT.sql_text);
      end loop;
      num_rows := num_rows + 1;
   end loop;
  
dbms_output.put_line('________________________________________________');
   dbms_output.put_line('Number of Active Sessions =
'||num_rows);
  
dbms_output.put_line('________________________________________________');
exception
when others
then
   dbms_output.put_line('SQL ERROR '||sqlcode||'
'||sqlerrm);
end;
