Disabling process priority aging for CPU VPs

Use the noage option of the VPCLASS configuration parameter to disable process priority aging for database server CPU VPs on operating systems that support this feature. Priority aging occurs when the operating system lowers the priority of long-running processes as they accumulate processing time. You might want to disable priority aging because it can cause the performance of the database server processes to decline over time.

Your database server distribution includes a machine notes file that contains information about whether your version of the database server supports this feature.

Specify the noage option of VPCLASS if your operating system supports this feature.
