V$RESOURCE_LIMIT

“V$RESOURCE_LIMIT” Reference Note

Oracle9i Information

  • This view displays information about global resource use for some of the system resources. Use this view to monitor the consumption of resources so that you can take corrective action, if necessary.Some resources, those used by DLM for example, have an initial allocation (soft limit), and the hard limit, which is theoretically infinite (although in practice it is limited by SGA size). During SGA reservation/initialization, a place is reserved in SGA for the INITIAL_ALLOCATION of resources, but if this allocation is exceeded, additional resources are allocated up to the value indicated by LIMIT_VALUE. The CURRENT_UTILIZATION column indicates whether the initial allocation has been exceeded. When the initial allocation value is exceeded, the additional required resources are allocated from the shared pool, where they must compete for space with other resources.A good choice for the value of INITIAL_ALLOCATION will avoid the contention for space. For most resources, the value for INITIAL_ALLOCATIONis the same as the LIMIT_VALUE. Exceeding LIMIT_VALUE results in an error.
    Column Datatype Description
    RESOURCE_NAME VARCHAR2(30) Name of the resource
    CURRENT_UTILIZATION NUMBER Number of (resources, locks, or processes) currently being used
    MAX_UTILIZATION NUMBER Maximum consumption of this resource since the last instance start-up
    INITIAL_ALLOCATION VARCHAR2(10) Initial allocation. This will be equal to the value specified for the resource in the initialization parameter file (UNLIMITED for infinite allocation).
    LIMIT_VALUE VARCHAR2(10) Unlimited for resources and locks. This can be greater than the initial allocation value (UNLIMITED for infinite limit).

Description

CURRENT_UTILIZATION of processes in V$RESOURCE_LIMIT
may be too high.

Hdr: 3896119 9.2.0.5 RDBMS 9.2.0.5 VOS PRODID-5 PORTID-197
Abstract: CURRENT_UTILIZATION OF V$RESOURCE_LIMIT IS UNUSUAL BIGGER THAN PROCESSES

PROBLEM:
——–
JTAKABUC has already filed Bug#3893908 for TNS-12516 problem.
The cause of TNS-12516 seems to be the service handler is
in a “blocked” state (this relation is indicated in Note:240710.1).
This bug is filed for investigation of CurrentUtilization of
V$RESOURCE_LIMIT issue.

We checked CURRENT_UTILIZATION of V$RESOURCE_LIMIT.
The value of it seems to be unusual.
The number of Oracle processes was not increased, but
CURRENT_UTILIZATION of V$RESOURCE_LIMIT increased as time passes.

The result of ps command was the same as the count of V$PROCESS.
It seems that some problem occurred in v$resource_limit.

DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSIS:
——————–
CURRENT_UTILIZATION of V$RESOURCE_LIMIT seems to be
increased/decreased when Oracle process was created/deleted.

So the value is CURRENT_UTILIZATION of V$RESOURCE_LIMIT
is almost same as the value of count(*) of V$PROCESS.
But it was not so.

Incorrect (always increasing) values showed in v$resource_limit for the transactions field

Applies to:

Oracle Server – Enterprise Edition – Version: 10.2.0.2
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

Values in v$resource_limit go way too high for the transactions value.
The value is continuously increasing, while it’s clear the actual number of transactions is not that big:

select * from v$resource_limittransactions 18593 18595 3965 UNLIMITED

while:

select count(*) from v$transactionCOUNT(*)
————
67

Cause

This is caused by:
bug: <<5768464>> V$RESOURCE_LIMIT TRANSACTIONS VALUE KEEPS INCREASING ALL THE TIME
probably a duplicate of:
Bug: <<4489041>> CURRENT_UTILIZATION IN V$RESOURCE_LIMIT BECOMES LARGER THAN CURRENT TRANSACTIONS

Solution

To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:

1. use the number of records in v$transaction instead of the value in v$resource_limit view.
2. monitor the evolution of:
Bug: <<4489041>> CURRENT_UTILIZATION IN V$RESOURCE_LIMIT BECOMES LARGER THAN CURRENT TRANSACTIONS
and
Bug: <<5768464>> V$RESOURCE_LIMIT TRANSACTIONS VALUE KEEPS INCREASING ALL THE TIME
on Metalink.
