Hello All,

I would like to see your expert opinion on this explain plan. I came across this explain plan on one of the forum which I visit regularly. To be honest, till date I have never every seen such a plan. I am wondering whether anybody have ever dealt with such a huge data volume. I just want to keep myself updated and educated. It's not that I am trying to find fault, it's just for my own personal benefit I am requesting my co-fellow forum members to share their opinion on this.

Below URL will give more details about what the actual problem is.

This is the plan after reading it I am completely stumped after reading the first line of the explain plan.

SQL> select * from table(dbms_xplan.display());

P.S : It's not well-formatted. Bear with me.

[Mod-Edit: Frank had nothing better to do, so formatted the plan-table output]

Frank,

Thanks for spending your time in formatting the explain plan output. I am still trying hard to get out of the shock after seeing this plan.

Regards

Raj
