Application is getting timeouts after certain no of execution : 12c

3255403 Member Posts: 8

Hello friends,

We are getting timeouts on application from database (RAC - two machines on Linux 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64) after certain number of execution having sql and pl/sql. Whether we run application on 500 tx/sec or 800 tx/sec, we get timeouts relatively. After few timeouts application recovers. If we restart database the scenario occurs after around 2 -3 million transactions after that it can occur randomly.

Assuming there was some problem in SGA, Initially SGA was auto tuned so we tried it to set manual but we are still facing the issue. Currently SGA is manual and v$sgainfo stat is following:

In the above output we see the shared pool is growing.we checked v$sga_resize_ops for the same too.

Please provide your valuable suggestions/feedback.

    Why assume the problem has anything to do with SGA? There could be any number of reasons why your application doesn't scale.

    Run application with apparent maximum load. Trace additional load - where does the time go? If you dont know this you are just guessing and opening yourself up to the ready-fire-aim approach to performance.
