RE: Gathering of Statistics

Andrew,

Do you keep a copy of the stats before running the procedure to gather the new 
stats?. What would you do if the performance dropped after gathering the stats.

I would seriously demand an explanation from the supplier.  I received 
instructions to run an almost identical command daily from one of my suppliers, 
and it works perfectly.  Keeps the performance right where it should be.  ymmv.

If the supplier gave the following statement:

Dbms_stats.gather_schema_stats(ownname=>user,cascade=>true,method_opt=>'FOR ALL 
INDEXED COLUMNS SIZE 254')

And said to run it once a week, would you do it.

The reason I ask is the supplier did supply the statement to run and told us to 
run it once a week. But after running it a week ago the performance of the 
application dropped to become almost unusable. The drop in performance occurred 
after gathering the stats. When asked for assistance they told us to rerun the 
statement and it should fix the problem. But the statement is the problem.

I agree.  The vendor should be able to provide information about where and 
when, but you have to provide the script.

Siebel is notorious for needing special consideration when gathering statistics.

It often is a futile expectation though.

Hi All,

If you purchase an application from a supplier would you expect them to supply 
a script for gathering statistics on their schema and to make recommendations 
on how frequently the statistics should be gathered ?
