DATA DICTIONARY CACHE NOTES:Parameter - Name of the parameter that determines the number of entries in the data dictionary cache.
Gets - Total number of requests for information on the data object.
Getmisses - Number of data requests resulting in cache misses.
% Cache Misses - Miss Ratio
Count - Total number of entries in the cache
Usage - Number of cache entries that contain valid data.
This report shows the DC cache statistics (a part of the shared pool).
Whenever the database parses a SQL statement, it scans the text for syntax and semantic correctness. The semantic
check requires cross-referencing of the information in the SQL statement and the data dictionary, including the
table names, columns-to-date relationships, column names, data types, and security access privileges. To resolve
the relationships, Oracle uses the data dictionary cache in the SGA. When the data sought in not in the cache, Oracle
executes SQL statements to retrieve the data dictionary information from the SYSTEM tablespace. These statements for data
dictionary information represent one type of recursive SQL statement. To increase the size available to the dictionary
cache, increase the size of the shared pool area (via the SHARED_POOL_SIZE init.ora parameter.)
Missing a get on the data dictionary or shared pool area of the SGA is more costly than missing a get
on a data buffer or waiting for a redo buffer.
If these parameters look familiar - you are probably recalling them from Oracle v6 (when you tuned these in the
round(GETMISSES/GETS,2)*100 "% Cache Misses",
where GETS > 0
order by (GETMISSES/GETS)*100 desc
LATCH GET AND MISS NOTES:Latch Name - Name of the latch
Gets - Number of times obtained wait
Misses - Number of time obtained with wait but failed first try
Gets / Misses % - Ratio of misses to gets
Immediate Gets - Number of times obtained with no wait
Immediate Misses - Number of times failed to get with no wait
round(((GETS-MISSES)*100) / GETS , 2) "Gets/Misses %",
where GETS != 0
or IMMEDIATE_MISSES > 0
order by ((GETS-MISSES) / GETS) desc
