If the monitored database is a 10g RAC cluster, there is an Oracle bug that prevents DPA from collecting blocking or locking information. DPA gathers this information from the V$SESSION.BLOCKING_SESSION column, and on a 10g RAC cluster, this query may hang. When it hangs, it does so for 60 seconds, and waits on a wait event named "DIAG Idle Event."

Because of this issue, DPA recognizes a 10g RAC cluster and turns the blocking/locking feature off.  There is no workaround.
