    Metrics Database Time Spent Waiting for event class "other"

    SherrieK
      I see many alerts in the category Wait by Wait Class, Database Time Spent Waiting for event class "other". Drilling down into the alert doesn't show anything but to run ADDM. An ADDM run indicates that there are no problems.

      Another wait event is "Administrative", where the same thing happens.

      I'd like to differentiate meaninful alerts, but cannot find much information about these event classes, and what I should be looking for. There is so much to go through in Grid, I'd like to be able to respond to what is important, and suppress or ignore what is not. But, if this is telling me I should be looking deeper somewhere, a suppress wouldn't be a good thing.

      Does anyone have any information on these wait classes?
