Description David Stevenson 2002-11-01 08:11:39 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0; Q312461)

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):

How reproducible:

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 
a while

Expected Results:  System may slow a bit but not stop like this.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-11-01 08:42:33 EST
since you filed this against the kernel: what kernel version are you using?
Comment 2 David Stevenson 2002-11-01 08:57:03 EST
Sorry, I should have said.  2.4.9
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2003-12-16 21:37:30 EST
Should be fixed in 2.4.20-20 errata kernels.
