Oracle Text Searches Causing Sever Locking/Contention.
Last updated on APRIL 01, 2012
Applies to:Oracle Text - Version: 10.2.0.5 to 220.127.116.11 - Release: 10.2 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The problem is that searches run on Oracle Text data generate locks where subsequent searches lock against a previous session.
Left alone, these locks do not clear by themselves.
The query that is always involved in the locks is:
AND rownum < 10000
<Patch 9499302> did not resolve the issue, but did appear to reduce the number/frequency of occurrences by about a third overall, so did have a positive effect.
