RE: Oracle Performance

Maybe I wasn't clear enough. I use the Rule hint for troubleshooting. If it 
works much faster with the Rule hint, obviously something else needs 
investigating like analyzing tables or using histograms. If using Rule is 
slower, that also gives me some ideas. If using Rule doesn't make any 
difference and the SQL is still slow, maybe there needs to be an index or some 
other way of writing the SQL.

Using the Rule hint is a good, quick troubleshooting method but not normally 
the fix.
