I this this is a general question that I hope is easy to answer. If I query my database with a query from 9/1/08 to 9/4/08 it takes over an hour, but if I query from 9/1/08 to 10/1/08 it takes 5 min. What could possibly cause this?

I assumed that you posted date in dd/mm/yy format.

In that case the "long" query retrieves data for 3 monhts (about 90 days) while the "fast" one doing it for a single day.

That may impact the performance.

HTH.

nah. It really is 5 days. I did the same (5 day) query the next day, and it took less than a mintute. So, it's not consistantly slow just becuase it is a shorter time span. I actually get this problem when I query close to today, so it's more like 10/5/08-10/9/08 takes long time vs 9/9/08-10/9/08 taking 3 min. Also, when I query just 5 days from a month ago, it goes fast. I am starting to think there might be some write locks going on or something strange like that.

I don't think it's a lock problem:

In oracle SELECT does NOT do any locking.

try running 2 queries with event 10046 and post TKPROF with wait info.

Please post the query along with a query plan. Otherwise you will never get an answer.

It would also help if you post table definitions (simple DESC from sqlplus would be sufficient) so we could confirm or deny the use of date format dd/mm/rr vs. mm/dd/rr.

I am with HTH on this one so far. Most obvious reason is you are using date format dd/mm/rr and not mm/dd/rr.

ugh, it's big and ugly, I know, but I guess that means you people that know what you are doing can help even more. Also, all I knew to do with the expain plan was "SELECT * from plan_table" and it fills a 1Mb txt file. Is there a better way to get you that data? I use SQLDeveloper but I don't see any way to output the plan once it is generated.
Thanks

Should be less if you read OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code (See SQL Formatter).
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.
