Enabling parallel DML in dbms_scheduler [message #270422] Wed, 26 September 2007 19:08 Go to next message

Oracle version - running on two node RAC (Linux Red Hat)

I have a large insert for which I need to use parallel DML. My stored procedure looks like the following

CREATE OR REPLACE procedure test_scheduler is
l_cnt number ;
execute immediate 'truncate table ccss_key_maps_temp drop storage' ;
execute immediate 'alter session force parallel dml';
insert /*+ append nologging parallel(b,40) */ into ccss_key_maps_temp b select /*+ parallel(a,40) */ * from ccss_key_maps a ;

I am using dbms_scheduler to schedule this program.

exec dbms_scheduler.drop_job('BO_AGG_ETL',TRUE) ;
exec dbms_scheduler.drop_program('BO_AGGREGATE_PGM') ;

exec dbms_scheduler.create_program (
program_name => 'BO_AGGREGATE_PGM',
program_type => 'STORED_PROCEDURE',
program_action => 'TEST_SCHEDULER',
number_of_arguments => 0,
enabled => TRUE ,
comments => 'Program for populating BO summary table'
) ;

exec dbms_scheduler.create_job (
job_name => 'BO_AGG_ETL',
job_class => 'ADHOC_CLASS',
program_name => 'BO_AGGREGATE_PGM',
enabled => TRUE,
auto_drop => FALSE,
comments => 'Job to run BO aggregate ETL') ;

When this job gets executed I could see only thread is doing the block changes using the following query. PDML_STATUS is disabled for all of them except one.

If I try to invoke the stored procedure from sqlplus session , then I could see pdml_status enabled for all slaves. Consequently the external invocation runs significantly faster than the one triggered by scheduler. Apparently, altering session in the second execute immediate statement is not working. Can anybody please tell me how I can enable PDML when running a job from dbms_scheduler? Any help will be appreciated.

TO_CHAR (s.logon_time, 'MM/DD HH24:MI:SS') "Connect Time",
