Experts,

i need assistance to tune the following query. i am seeing full table scan on one table which has 40 million records. is there any way to avoid the full table scan.

please find the query and execution plan.

Keep your statistics up to date, Oracle thinks there is 1 row in your table not 40 million.

These functions preclude index use
and to_char(subscription.billeddate, 'YYYYM M') < to_char(sysdate, 'YYYYMM') 
and to_char(subscription.startdate, 'YYYYMM') < to_char(sysdate, 'YYYYMM') 
and trunc(nvl(subscription.enddate, sysdate + 2)) > trunc(sysdate) 
and nvl(subscription.eventid, -1) > 0 
and to_number(to_char(subscription.startdate, 'DD')) = 24 
and mod(subscription.lid, :3) = :4 

IMO, without a re-design of table, a FTS of subscription table is required.

Maybe if you posted the FULL plan result we can know what happens in step 6.

As you can see filter in step 6 can't be indexed so, as Ana said, FTS is avoidable.
By the way, you have an error in one of the conditions.
In addition, some conditions are suboptimal, don't use TO_CHAR on dates to compare them.

Michel

It appears to me that 5 different columns of subscription tables are part of the WHERE clause.
Even if you can change the SQL to utilize indexes on 4 out of the 5 columns, the 5th & remaining column would still require a FTS.
So unless & until you can get the optimizer to use 5 indexes against table subscription, a FTS will be required.

>and mod(subscription.lid, :3) = :4
The condition above might be a very clever implementation trick but I suspect will be the most difficult to get used by/with an index.
With the current design/implementation, a FTS is a fact of life.

I think I understand what this means, but it is terribly misleading.

Unless you can get the optimiser to scan indexes on all of the predicates, then redundant table reads are unavoidable. Those reads will not be a FTS, they will be TABLE ACCESS BY INDEX ROWID (which is often worse!).

But this may not be a bad thing. If scanning on just ONE of those predicates is highly selective, then including others in the index(es) may not add much value.



This one looks non-selective. I guess most rows will predate SYSDATE. I would not bother changing it.
and to_char(subscription.billeddate, 'YYYYM M') < to_char(sysdate, 'YYYYMM')


Same here
and to_char(subscription.startdate, 'YYYYMM') < to_char(sysdate, 'YYYYMM')


There may be some value in indexing this one
and trunc(nvl(subscription.enddate, sysdate + 2)) > trunc(sysdate)
This is functionally equivalent to "endate after today - no NULLs". Try rewriting it as
and subscription.enddate >= trunc(sysdate) + 1
and index subscription.enddate.

Rewrite the following
and nvl(subscription.eventid, -1) > 0
to
subscription.eventid > 0
but it doesn't sound very selective to me, so I wouldn't index it.

This is a strange one
and to_number(to_char(subscription.startdate, 'DD')) = 24
Why would you only be interested in subscriptions starting on the 24th of ANY month? If this is legitimate, you could look into a function-based index.

and mod(subscription.lid, :3) = :4
Don't know how selective this would be, but you cannot index it because of the variable modulus in the MOD().


In summary, you could try indexing:
subscription( to_number(to_char(subscription.startdate, 'DD')), enddate)
