Subject: External table performance Can someone share the Tuning
activites that can be done for Selecting data from External table in 12c
(12.1)? I am working on project that is getting every 6hourly data as flat file
from external source and then has to be selected from ORacle table for some

Storage where File is located. I don;t think we can have indexes yet and so
checking experience from the experts.
