Description of problem:
When I add a large datafile to an oracle tablespace the system stop doing
anything else until the process is complete. Being a multi-taskingoperating
system I would not expect this to happen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.in sqlplus, alter tablespace name add datafile 'name' size 100M;
2.system stops until process completes, then continues normally
Actual Results: system hangs - occasional commands (such as sar -d) work after
Expected Results: System may slow a bit but not stop like this.
since you filed this against the kernel: what kernel version are you using?
Sorry, I should have said. 2.4.9
Should be fixed in 2.4.20-20 errata kernels.
