Question: 3

What is the difference between multithreaded/shared server and dedicated server?

  • In case of a dedicated server, a server process is associated with a single user process and serves it dedicatedly.
  • In case of a shared server, a single server process can serve multiple user processes. This is achieved with the help of a dispatcher process, which places each process in a single request queue.
  • Server process picks up the user process whenever it is free. After that, the server process puts the result in the individual response queue associated with different dispatcher processes.

Question: 4

How long does the rollback segment hold data to maintain consistency?

  • Rollback segment holds the previous version of data block until either its gets committed or the space is not available for reuse.
  • If a session is reading specific block from rollback segment while the other session has committed the information, then more rollback space is required to maintain more rollback information.
  • In that case, this specific block ages out of the rollback segment and the reading or selecting session gets an error.
