Can you post both plans?

Maybe someone here can give you an idea.

Nothing was changed..... I tried to increase the shared pool on the new = dev
version and bounced it.... no good.

I am trying various hints in all the views and sub views to no avail. I finally got a descent tech now for my tar....=20

Yes I just updated the stats again for the new tech. I am going to give = him
a 10053 trace as well. The explain plan for the new database is very strange for this query.

Sometimes even a small change in plans can result in a large change in performance for the query depending on what the change is.

Were the statistics updated on the new version?

Was the shared pool increased in size to compensate for the additional 4 bytes in every address pointer used. The 64 bit version of 8.1.7 needs about a 20% increase in the shared pool just to run the same load in our experience, but then we have a lot of stored code (pl/sql in the = database).

Were any database parameters changed?

Sorry if this has been explored, but it sounds like the difference in the plans is the problem. Can you elaborate on WHAT is different about the plans?

Is something else hogging temp?
