RE: Help with view, pushing predicate, and 9i

The predicate may have been pushed already but the optimizer is choosing
a different plan anyway.

Do you get the right exec plan if you run sql that defines the view?

Subject: Help with view, pushing predicate, and 9i


Hi,

We have a view which is usually accessed like:
select * from vu_xan_comp_agrmt_single where doc_id =3D3D :some_doc_id;

In 8i (8.1.7.4 on Solaris 8), the 'doc_id=3D3D ' predicate is pushed =
into
the view, and it works fine.

We are in the process of converting this app to 9i (9.2.0.5 on Solaris
8), and in 9i, the predicate is not pushed.  This results in a full
table scan on a large table, and, abysmal performance.

This should NOT be a case where the predicate can't be pushed, due to
rownum or analytical or aggregate function, etc.  It works in 8i, so why
not in 9i?  Is this an optimizer bug?  (_push_join_union_view and
_push_join_predicate are both TRUE.)

Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,

-Mark
