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
"USER"."QUEUE_TABLE" tab where msgid = :1

which is executed for every dequeued message.
