RE: bitmap conversion to rowids operation with btree indexes?

I will try to get it because the DBA is currenlty out of the office.
We didn't prepare any trace files after he has changed the parameter
because the response time was as expected (excellent).=20
But I have the run-time plan prepared by RBO for the same statement
where the response time was 0.02s. I suspect that the plan=20
prepared by CBO will be quite similar.

I will also try to get 10053 trace to study it.=20
It smells me like a bug in CBO.

Kind regards, Joze

Subject: RE: bitmap conversion to rowids operation with btree indexes?



I guess, AND_EQUAL / Logical OR is optimized to use bitmaps for obvious
reasons, rather than ANDing or UNIONing the rowids. I can see that
generating bitmap from rowids and degenerating rowids from bitmaps to be
a costly operation, if the row source is smaller. But I always thought,
if the # of rows from each index row source is high (98M & 2M in this
case) and if the end result set is comparatively very small (just 226
rows here), then this specific access plan would be excellent.. Sort of
using bitmap indices except the cardinality is much higher. Your
experience just breaks that assumption!

Can you post the tuned explain plan also ? I am just wondering whether
the reason for performance improvement is due to complete change in
access plan or Is that by avoiding the rowid->bitmap->rowid conversion
?..
