Manages pre-spawned server processes. By default the Oracle Database can pre-spawn foreground processes to improve the performance of client connections.
A pre-spawned process refers to a process that has been spawned but does not have a session yet. When a user connects to the database or service a process is needed, the process performs further initialization as needed.
