C. The SECONDS_IN_WAIT value of the log buffer space event indicated time spent waiting for space
in the redo log buffer.

C. At one shared server for each latch.
D. At least two DBWn processes for each latch.
107. In a dictionary-managed tablespace, the SMON background process periodically coalesces
neighboring free extents when which condition is true?
A. When there is more than one data file in the tablespace.
B. When the value of PCTINCREASE for the tablespace is zero.
C. When the value of PCTINCREASE for the tablespace is NOT zero.
D. When the value of INITIAL_EXTENT for the tablespace is greater than 1 MB.
134. You should query the buffer cache hit ratio during normal working loads, but not immediately after
A. There are no statistics to query because there is no database activity.
B. Statistics are only available once the database has been active for a period of time.
C. Querying the buffer cache statistics immediately after database startup will yield incomplete results.
D. The buffer cache is empty when the instance starts, resulting in more physical reads after startup.
136. Which two statements are true regarding automatic undo segments? (Choose two)
A. Undo tablespaces must be created as DICTIONARY MANAGED.
B. Undo tablespaces must be created as LOCALLY MANAGED.
C. Any tablespace can be used for automatic undo segment management.
You specify which tablespace to use with the init.ora parameter UNDO_TABLESPACE.

you create the object.
146. Which two statements are true regarding tuning the Data Dictionary Cache? (Choose two)
A. The ratio of GETMISSES to GETS found in the V$ROWCACHE view should be less than 5
B. If the hit ratio for the library cache is acceptable, the hit ratio for the data dictionary should also be
C. On instance startup, the data dictionary cache contains no data, so any SQL statement is likely to
result in cache misses.
D. On instance startup the data dictionary cache is automatically loaded with the most commonly used
information, so many SQL statements will not cause cache misses.
148. Which two statements are true of the buffer cache? (Choose two)
A. In Oracle9i, the buffer caches can be individually sized.
B. Blocks in the buffer cache may be in one of several states.
C. In Oracle9i additional buffer caches can be dynamically added.

buffer caches in use.
E. Blocks in the buffer cache may be in one of two states, either free or dirty.
167. Which is a correct guideline for resolving wait times on the request queue when using Oracle Shared

B. Increase the size of the large pool, so that less time is spent performing I/O connected with the
C. Increase the size of the shared pool, so that less time is spent performing I/O connected with the
D. If the value of SERVERS_HIGHWATER reaches the value set for the MAX_SHARED_SERVERS
initialization parameter, consider raising the value of SHARED_SERVERS.
184. There are two users, John and Susan, who are updating the EMPLOYEE table in the following order:
1. First, John issues this SQL update:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET LAST_NAME = ĎSMITHí where ID=200;
2. Next, Susan issues this SQL update:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET SALARY=50000 WHERE ID=250;
3. Next, John issues this SQL update:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET LAST_NAME ĎBAKERí WHERE ID=250;
4. FINALLY, Susan issues this SQL update:
UPDATE EMPLOYEE SET SALARY=60000 WHERE ID=200;

A. Oracle kills Susanís session to prevent a deadlock.
B. Oracle will detect a deadlock and roll back Susanís session.
C. Oracle kills both Johnís and Susanís statements to prevent a deadlock.
D. Both Johnís and Susanís sessions would hang indefinitely because of a deadlock.
E. Oracle will detect a deadlock and roll back the statement causing the deadlock.
186. Which two statements are true regarding the use of DB_CACHE_ADVICE init.ora parameter?
A. Setting the parameter to READY reserves space in the buffer cache to store information about
different buffer cache sizes, but no CPU overhead is incurred.
B. Setting the parameter to READY reserves space in the shared pool to store information about
different buffer cache sizes, but no CPU overhead is incurred.
C. Setting the parameter to ON reserves space in the buffer cache to store information about different
buffer cache sizes, and CPU overhead is incurred as statistics are collected.
D. The V$DB_CACHE_ADVICE view contains information that predicts the estimated number of
physical reads for different cache sizes for each buffer cache setup in the SGA.
