Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 You can use the DBMS_PROCESS package to configure and modify the number of prespawned processes in the foreground process pool.

Oracle Database can create process pools to improve the efficiency of client connections. You can use the DBMS_PROCESS package to manage these pools. You can view the current process pools by querying the V$PROCESS_POOL view.
Process pools are created only if the database is running in the multithreaded Oracle Database model.

Connect to the database as a user with the required privileges.
The user must have SYSDBA administrative privilege, and you must exercise this privilege using AS SYSDBA at connect time.
Run a subprogram in the DBMS_PROCESS package to manage a process pool.
