Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle is introducing a change specifically for the Siebel application that will eliminate the requirement for the SIEBEL_ORA_BIND_PEEK variable setting. This change will reduce hard-parsing to only a single one when the SQL statement is first processed. Subsequent executions of the same statement (with the same or different bind values) will not generate more hard-parsing. Other improvements are included to further enhance SQL performance, which will be explained in detail when the fix becomes available.
