Oracle resources not freeing up

902998 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
Hi all,
I am using oracle RAC on two HP RX3600 servers.
Each server had 16GB memory.
MY SGA size on each node is 9GB.
The momery utilisation on each node showed 99% used.
LAst night i increased the memory of both servers to 24GB.
Node 2 was showing 60% memory utilisation.
But node 1 is still showing 99% memory used.
After implementing the new RAM the only thing that happened on node 1 was the daily scheduled backup.
As soon as the backup started the memory rose to 99% but it has been almost 6 hours since the backup finished and it is still showing 99% used.
Is there a fix for this????
Thank you.
