You should be able to turn it off without any dire consequences ... I'd open a SR with Oracle first just to make sure there isn't some patch available for your problem. RF Robert G.

Also, when i check my locked objects, I find that this table is locked alot (same with a few other WRI$ tables) WRI$_ADV_OBJSPACE_TREND_DATA are these tables used by the auto_space_advisor_job? Nothing really on google about it. I checked google and i saw a few posts asking about turning this off. Its causing performance problems. What are the consequences? I can't find anything.
