Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Propagation performance from a transactional queue has degraded in 10.2 compared to 9.2.

The transaction size is of the order of 1 million messages.

In 9.2 this transaction size took 30 minutes to propagate but fails to propagate in 10.2.

The job_queue_process associated with the propagation schedule consumes a large amount of CPU and memory. PGA heapdumps of the process indicate that the callheap is growing and this growth is associated with the following dequeue sql

select tab.rowid, tab.msgid, tab.corrid, tab.priority, tab.delay,
tab.expiration, tab.retry_count, tab.exception_qschema,
tab.exception_queue, tab.chain_no, tab.local_order_no, tab.enq_time,
tab.time_manager_info, tab.state, tab.enq_tid, tab.step_no,
tab.sender_name, tab.sender_address, tab.sender_protocol,
tab.dequeue_msgid, tab.user_prop, tab.user_data
from
"USER"."QUEUE_TABLE" tab where msgid = :1

which is executed for every dequeued message.
