Facing Many Blocking Session For Parallel Queries After 11gR2 Upgrade.
Last updated on MAY 17, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When a threshold is set for 'DBMS_SERVER_ALERT.BLOCKED_USERS' using server alert functionality, alerts are generated in 11.2 and up for situations where
a parallel query coordinator is waiting on parallel slaves to return results. These waits are cleared automatically.
You will see messages similar to 'Session XXXX is blocking 0 other sessions'.
Upgrade to 11.2.
