RE: Uneven distribution of latches - what's next?

 Before answering it would be nice to know about your query and it's =
execution rate.

Subject: Uneven distribution of latches - what's next?

The subject says it all.
The distribution below (from v$latch_children for latch# 157 - library =
cache):

CHILD#       GETS     MISSES     SLEEPS  WAIT_TIME
------ ---------- ---------- ---------- ----------
     2   16597807      72387        333    1674350
     1   34475788     203781       1254    4801328
     7   27065517     241493       1284    5753591
     8   33897775     440298       1718   14570006
     4   60799550     676421       1833   11250799
    10   62099645     922629       2881   11083064
     6   52733583     818465       3384   21322498
     3   56602708     883077       9150   49110401
     9   65188664    1275753      10214   64507786
    11  117460816    3227510      24170  133460244
     5 3643740682 3001597195   23020516 6.2108E+12

So child latch 5 is the one getting hit the most by far. I know exactly =
the reason/query that gets soft-reparsed over and over, but is there =
**anything** that can be done from a system/DB configuration =
perfspective to:
- ease the load on CPUs pegging at a 100%
- make the distribution more even (would it improve anything, e.g. =
decrease response time and/or overall system load?)? Why child latch 5?=20
=20
