RE: session_cached_cursors pros & cons

Mark,
        I don't see that script answers Joe's question.  I'd like to know
too.

Syed,
        You didn't mention what type of application you're evaluating.  If
it's home grown you could ask the application group to recode the worst
offenders to reduce the need for the cached cursors.  If that's too much or
it's a purchased application you could identify the offending user or code
and use a logon trigger to ALTER SESSION SET SESSION_CACHED_CURSOR =
(appropriate value)

        This script should show you who has all the open cursors

Joe,
Go to:
http://www.ixora.com.au/scripts/library.htm
and look for the session_cursor_cache.sql script.

Anjo,

Is there any documentation that can help in deetermining how much bigger =

the shared pool needs to be when using session_cached_cursors?

Thanks.
Joe
