Information in this document applies to any platform.
Version: 10.1.0.2 to 10.2.0.3
Recently database server 10.x was upgraded from 9.x (or an earlier release) and high waits for Library Cache Latch is noticed. No changes have been made--spfile parameters, workload, etc to affect library cache load.
CURSOR_SHARING=SIMILAR is used and also was used in 9.x.
The default value for bind peeking has not been changed which is TRUE and is an underscore parameter.
The automatic statistics gathering in 10.x has not been changed:
SQL> SELECT STATE FROM DBA_SCHEDULER_JOBS WHERE JOB_NAME = 'GATHER_STATS_JOB';
AWR or Statspack reports show some SQL with a high Version Count which was not the case in 9.x.
