Weekend Learning: Defining the TCP Socket (KGAS) wait event
I have talked about this wait event before as a potential warning sign of network issues, as well as an indicator when you have database traffic misbehaving, but what does Oracle say about the TCP Socket (KGAS) wait event? I am SO glad you asked! Wait no more, check out MOS article "What are 'TCP Socket (Kgas)' Waits?" from document ID 416451.1 for the official word on why this wait event is not a cause to open an SR with Support, and what issues it could be representing!
