One of my procedure contains the following sql query which takes along time to fetch the result. Can we tune it anyway

select orv.vendor, orv.loc_code as dc, orv.transport_mode from od_routing_v orv , trans_mode tm where tm.trans_desc = orv.transport_mode and tm.trans_mode_key > 5
select l1.loc_desc as vendor, l2.loc_desc as dc, tm.trans_desc from trans_lead_time tlt, location l1, location l2, trans_mode tm where tlt.source_location_key = l1.location_key and tlt.dest_location_key = l2.location_key and tlt.trans_mode_key = tm.trans_mode_key and tlt.coalition_key = 1 and tm.trans_mode_key > 5

Then provide the required and usual information.

You can also have a look at Database Performance Tuning Guide.

If one or both of those row sources is very large, then you might find restructuring the query as a NOT IN () subquery will give a big improvement. This is because a NOT IN subquery can be resolved (sometimes) as a HASH join, whereas MINUS requires a sort of both row sources.

If you try the NOT IN subquery, you MUST, MUST, MUST ensure that the join columns on both the outer query and the subquery are non-nullable. This can be done with NOT NULL constraints on the database or with AND col IS NOT NULL clauses in the SQL. It is not sufficient for the columns to simply contain non-null values - it must be enforced, otherwise Oracle will not use a HASH join. Run your query through Explain Plan - if you don't see the keyword HASH JOIN ANTI (the ANTI is essential), don't bother running it.

Post your new query here if you need help. This time use CODE tags to format the query, otherwise we cannot read it properly.
