11g upgrade still good

Still looking good.
CPU on the new box is hovering under the 20% mark having been habitually > 80% on the old kit. But it could be a quiet time for the business so we will have to compare the metrics that we capture as a proxy for “business activity”.
Best news is that we were getting a significant number of “ORA-01801: date format too long for internal buffer” errors every day causing the client-server application to crash.
These have been due to cursors being shared when they shouldn’t be, for example due to NLS mismatches.
As hoped (and promised to the business), these have disappeared with the upgrade.
