I snap v$sess_time_model for the test session, then run a query and snap again. Then I just calculate the difference between snaps and percentage of every position to DB time as a base. The raw numbers are:
DB time: 22784611
parse time elapsed: 21609770
sql execute elapsed time: 20780191
DB CPU: 11090000 snap1:
DB time: 5497118
parse time elapsed: 4847375
sql execute elapsed time: 3645675
DB CPU: 2060000 the rest is tens of thousands so negligible, so I do not provide. no parallel processing in use.
