OpenWithServiceComponents 5 times slower for Oracle than for SQL Server?

P: n/a
Hi,

I am experiencing some problems accessing an Oracle database through
OLE DB from an MTS application using OpenWithServiceComponents (which
is supposed to give me connection pooling).
When I connect to a SQL Server database it only takes 3.1 ms to open a
connection, while with Oracle it takes 15.5 ms (both DB's running on
the same machine).
Am I doing something wrong, am I missing something here?
I have tried to use the plain Open method, but in this case it takes
5.4 ms with SQL Server and 31.4 ms with Oracle.
Is Oracle really that much slower when accessing it through OLE DB?

Thanks for any advice/hints!

What about subsequent times? Is the machine (server) swapping? MS
SqlServer is known to take all the ram on the machine and that could do it.
(try shuting down the instance and see if it makes a difference). It is
hard to say since you are going through a lot of non-native stuff. So who
knows what it is doing.

What I did was to open and close the connection 1000 times and take
the average response time for this operation. No DB queries were
involved. I have 1 GB RAM, there is also no swapping involved. It just
seems that the connection pooling is still much slower in Oracle than
in SQL Server (about 5 times) and I would like to know why...

Use IPC (or even better BEQ) stack instead of TCP/IP.

Sounds like your connection pooling thing isn't doing its stuff.

I tried IPC, same results.
