RE: Why a rebuild speeds up my queries.

David
        In addition to Richard's comments: Between before and after
rebuilds, table scans(short tables) have gone up from 783 to 3285,
whereas table fetch by rowid has gone down from 4.4M to 3.9M. Table scan
rows gotten also has gone up from 9M to 39M. I think, your process,
after the table rebuild is scanning at least one smaller table using
FTS too.  I guess, only 10046 event trace will identify this correctly.
BTW, are these SQLs use bind variables or are they literal variables ?

PS: Not sure, how you are looking at the explain plan, but in few cases,
sqlplus autotrace and sqltrace explain plans do not match.

Hi Richard thanks for the snippet about dbms_stats, yes we do use that.
Next time I will use analyze and see what that is.

As for pctfree, the tables are set to the default of 10.  I think this
is the problem because the rows start of as 'skinny' ones with all
values being 0, then they get updated constantly with true values,
numbers up to 10 digits, varchar2 up to 20, so they then become fat and
must migrate.

Do you know of a good link where it tells me how to set pctfree
properly?

Oracle docs are good but I find them to tell me more what it is about
that what it should be.

Thanks very much

Dave

Hi David,

Your "table fetch continued row" count has certainly plummeted so
something's changed there.

When you say dba_tables shows nothing, you don't by any chance use
dbms_stats to analyze as chain_cnt is only calculated with the "old"
analyze command (else you just get a 0).

In which case, yes, your pctfree is buggered.

Just a thought.

Cheers

Richard

Hi,
I have a process that overtime slowly gets slower and slower (execution
plans are the same)

A rebuild of the table / index fixes this and makes it go quick again. I
know that we shouldn't need to rebuild things, so I need to know what is
wrong in my setup which is causing this.

The setup is this: oracle 9.2.0.4 on Solaris

Running queries against hashed partitioned table which never get deleted
them, they only get inserted into and then updated a fair amount.

We think it is due to row migration / chained rows but chain count from
dba_tables showed nothing after an analyze.
