I have 2 dispatchers on for shared server and most of the time I have 25-35 active connections should I stop the shared server connections.

Depends.
Do you think there will be a benefit of dedicated connections over shared connections?
Do you have the resources available on the server to handle the memory for 25-35 connections?

I assume it was created as shared process for a reason.

I have 20GB memory and most of the time only 30-70% is used and I never seeb any paging on this server.

The connections in the shared server  are main connections. In the shared server they could be slow.

Then you 'should' be able to handle dedicated connections but we cannot say for sure.  You undererstand your users and what they are doing.

Do you not have a test system to see the impact of shared processs versus dedicated with your application?

Somewhat tongue in cheek, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.....  Congrats if this is the worst performance issue in your system.

Same way you test any proposed change:  capture before metrics, make a change, capture after change metrics.  Compare results.



Create a bunch of sessions, do a bunch of things, check menory usage and pcoess times.

Disable shared processes.
