Primarily due to larger amount of locking needed, but also due to immaturity of ESX volume management. Using few metas (luns) striped across a similar number of spindles, and similar port use, as the many smaller devices provides the same physical I/O performance with less overhead in ESX. Less

Explain the difference between a FUNCTION, PROCEDURE and PACKAGE.

1 Answers

A function and procedure are the same in that they are intended to be a collection of PL/SQL code that carries a single task. While a procedure does not have to return any values to the calling application, a function will return a single value. A package on the other hand is a collection of functions and procedures that are grouped together based on their commonality to a business function or application. Less
