RE: Shared pool from 8i to 9i

How do the longs factor into the problem with shared pool?? =20

I would not totally blame Oracle. PeopleSoft still has LONG data types
running around that are problematic at best and cause ORA-04031 errors.
The real fix is to get rid of the longs, which in 99% of the cases is
doable. There's a note on Metalink (sorry don't have the number) that
has the instructions for removing a long from a table. In PeopleSoft
you have to redefine the field as a varchar2(4000), then export the
table, drop & recreate it per the PeopleSoft created script (no don't
let app designer do it automatically). And then import the data back
with the ignore=3D3Dyes flag. Hopefully now that PeopleSoft and Oracle =
are one and the same things like this will get better.

We had a big system upgraded just on those versions... And we had a lot
of problems with ORA-4031.. We patched it..still Oracle pointed fingers
as peoplesoft and reverse...til the cio...got oracle in and owned up to
the problem.
Oracle can't do that anymore since the finger would have to be at
itself.. Probably a good thing.

Subject: RE: Shared pool from 8i to 9i on HP-UX has some compiler related issues and Oracle suggested
to upgrade to ( wasn't released that time). We were
getting ORA-7445 due to shared_pool memory allocation issue.=3D3D20 also has some shared_pool related issues which give ORA-4031. So upgrade may be required.

I converted hpux to Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production.

Shared pool was originally around 80M and never had any problems for
over a year.


I got a memory error, and then we upped it to 100M, then 160M, and
finally 400M.


ALTER SYSTEM SET shared_pool_size=3D3D3D400M SCOPE=3D3D3DBOTH;



Is this typical?


I start getting a lot of:
