Cost-Based Oracle Fundamentals (Expert's Voice in Oracle) by Jonathan Lewis

By Jonathan Lewis

Each SQL question that's submitted to the Oracle database is analyzed through a SQL question optimizer referred to as the price dependent Optimizer (CBO). The CBO makes use of information regarding the constitution, volume, and nature of the information to determine the best approach to locate your outcome. To be extra exact, it attempts to discover the question execution plan that has the bottom execution fee. As such, the CBO is likely one of the most crucial parts of the Oracle database, wisdom and figuring out of that are important to the final functionality of the database and your Oracle functions. there are millions of humans whose activity is to make Oracle databases run swifter and but, to lots of them, the CBO remains to be the last word black field. The SQL queries pass in, but when the execution occasions are "too gradual" they've got no genuine thought easy methods to logically and successfully hint and fasten the reason for the matter. which means they could waste loads of time of time (and cash) on trial-and-error tools for buying SQL statements to accomplish successfully. one of many significant problems, up until now, is they there was no unmarried resource of data explaining how Oracle’s cost-based optimizer is meant to paintings. In fee dependent Oracle, Jonathan Lewis thoroughly demystifies the CBO, supplying a lucid, thorough, and based description of ways the optimizer works, the way it does its mathematics, and the stuff you can do to make it behave. during this e-book, quantity 1 in a chain of 3, Jonathan covers the basics: the issues that everybody who makes use of the Oracle database must learn about the CBO. It sheds mild at the judgements the CBO makes while parsing a SQL assertion and selecting an entry plan. It demonstrates how the CBO calculates the price of a plan and the principles and elements that pass into those calculations. It unearths the fundamental assumptions the optimizer makes concerning the SQL and the knowledge, explains why issues get it wrong and the way you could repair them whilst these assumptions are incomplete, faulty, or just fake. He additionally encompasses a fantastic improve complications part that's crucial analyzing for somebody who has ever has, or ever will, improve among Oracle types. Volumes 2 and three will song alterations to the CBO in next Oracle 10g releases, and should hide the extra complicated and intricate good points of optimization. Jonathan Lewis is among the such a lot hugely revered Oracle experts within the overseas neighborhood and during this booklet he exhibits you the way to appreciate and use the CBO successfully, in order that your SQL queries run as successfully as attainable and, eventually, your purposes satisfy their functionality capability.

Example text

As data arrives, blocks will be formatted a few at a time. In the simplest setup, Oracle would format “the next five” blocks from the preallocated space as the need arose, and the object’s high water mark (HWM) would be adjusted to show how many blocks had been formatted and were available for use. With the arrival of ASSM in 9i, Oracle formats groups of adjacent blocks (typically 16, it seems) at a time. The high water mark still identifies the highest formatted block in the segment, but ASSM randomizes the allocation slightly, so that unformatted holes (16 blocks, or multiples thereof) can appear in the middle of the object.

Sql, but set event 10053 (which will be discussed in later chapters) to generate a trace file of the optimizer’s cost calculations. EVOLUTION OF OPTIMIZATION CODE As you go through the versions of Oracle, you will notice many examples of mechanisms that can be enabled or disabled at the system or session level by hidden parameters; there are also many mechanisms that can be enabled or disabled by hints at the SQL level. A common evolutionary path in the optimizer code seems to be the following: hidden by undocumented parameter and disabled in the first release; silently enabled but not costed in the second release; enabled and costed in the third release.

The answer to the first part of the question depends on the data distribution. • If there is an efficient way to get from t1 to t2, and if there are only a couple of rows in t2 for each row in t1, and if the extra volume of data added to each row by t2 is small, then joining before aggregating will probably be the better idea. • If there is no efficient way to get from t1 to t2, and there are lots of rows in t2 for each row in t1, and the extra volume of data added to each row by t2 is large, then aggregating before joining will probably be the better idea.
