Re: direct path write wait

Hi,

It is a DWH query, which has many outer joins. And has "order by" clause as 
well.

The wait is because of sorts only but cant avoid sorting....

    Dear Gurus,

    Am having huge amount of waits on "direct path write event". This event has
    98% of the total wait time. Now we want to tune it.

  Perhaps you might first want to tune the SQL statements that are causing the 
writes to tempfiles (sorts, hash_joins, GTT usage)?

    We are using Solaris 9 and Oracle 9.2.0.7 .

    After examining the system we found that logging is enabled on the mounted
    UFS file systems.

    Need your expert advice on the following...

    Please suggest the best solution for my environment.

    Looking forward to your ever valuable feedback.
