10g performance

Hi.

I've almost the same problem with two clients.

In the first, the old server was changed for a new and stronger server, with high performance. When they to that, and also installed oracle, the oracle performance was worst than in the old server. I searched for the parms of old server, and saw that in the new, less memory was allocated to oracle. Then, I changed the parms to became equal. For a few days oracle works fine. But now, I've received a mail telling that the performance slow down again.

In the second client, same application, but a little different study case. They've changed 9i for 10g. It is in automatic memory management. Also in this case, now the performance is worst than in 9i. Analyzing OEM, I saw that oracle is having so much I/O operations. Some updates and inserts was taking a long time to be completed, using so much I/O resources. I know that this can be an development problem. But I have a remote connection scheduled with the client in a few hours, when I'll try to change automatic to manual management, increase block_buffers, shared, and max_size, stop and start oracle server to see if the problem will be resolved. How can an application work worst in 10g than in 9i?
But, in case that this not work... I'll be without any others ideas to solve this problem... someone can help me with some tips if the actions described above doesn't work??

Thanks in advance.

Run the statististics. After that flush the shared pool to
force Oracle to recompile and reoptimize the execution plans.

If you run into
ORA-01882: timezone region %s not found

Not knowing how Oracle is configured leaves a lot of possibilities.

Redo logs, archive, undo, index and table updates all contribute to IO.

If you are doing redo log mirroring, are they on separate disk, or at least are you using a decent raid? Even though you should have at least 1 mirror for each log group, every redo mirror is extra IO.

Is redo on separate disk from undo?

About 20 more questions I could ask, but really you need to analyze the database and find where the problems lie. And I don't mean "analyze" in terms of computing statistics, I mean looking at all of the instance stats and narrowing down on where it is spending time.

Depends also by the kind of the disk storage.
If it is RAID array then you will experience delay.

Also there analyzing tables and indexes is tricky.
Pay attention on
(cascade=>true)

This commonly is missed and causes that the indexes are not
analyzed.
Also the shared pool should be flushed to force new plans.

After increasing the
db_buffer_cache
and the shared_pool_cache
the DB should work significantly faster.
