An Advanced Queueing application is being used and there are multiple sessions performing Listen operations on single and multiple-consumer queues.
Running AWR report shows a very high number of "latch free" waits.
At certain periods of time there is very heavy contention for a particular "channel operations parent latch" (child#=59). This latch is associated with the "AQ post/wait channel 1" broadcast channel.
An AWR snapshot of latch locations shows:
|channel operations parent latch||ksrchreset()||0||442,410||72,469|
An example stack from a waiting session is
kwqilintl -> kwqidlisten -> ksrchreset -> ksrmfree -> kslgetsl
