Ø How come there is only one distinct value of per_ind (first post), but the number of distinct keys in the index on per_ind is over 700,000 ?

Again nicely spotted. Here below is the correct figure

*select per_ind, count(1) cnt from XXX_PER_YYY group by per_ind;*

721,699 rows …

I managed to put the result in a test table so that I can check how much count I have for each per_ind and so on

select distinct cnt from mho_test order by cnt asc;

2

4

6

8

10

12

14

6119655 ---> this the count for per_ind = 0 (at the moment the query was issued)

56 rows

The old figure (that have prompted your question) was against a view  XXX_PER_YYY_VW (which is select * from XXX_PER_YYY where per_ind = 0).

There 4 columns on the XXX_PER_YYY table and they are all not null;

SQL> select count(1)

from

(

select table_name, partition_name, global_stats, last_analyzed, num_rows

from all_tab_partitions

where table_name='XXX_PAR_YYY’

)

where num_rows = 0;

COUNT(1)

758

785 empty partitions over 1493 partitions.

SQL> select table_name, global_stats, last_analyzed, num_rows

2 from all_tables

3 where table_name='XXX_PAR_YYY'

4 order by 1, 2, 4 desc nulls last;

```TABLE_NAME                     GLO LAST_ANALYZED       NUM_ROWS

------------------------------ --- ----------------- ----------

'XXX_PAR_YYY'                  YES 20131002 03:40:33   49916324

```

SQL> select leaf_blocks, distinct_keys, clustering_factor, num_rows,partitioned

2 from all_indexes where index_name = ' XXX_PER_IND';

LEAF_BLOCKS DISTINCT_KEYS CLUSTERING_FACTOR NUM_ROWS PAR

• ------------- ----------------- ---------- ---

120037 721,699 205043 49916324 YES I hope that I gave you sufficient information to suggest a way to have the statistics collected so that the CBO will do good estimations and hence generate an optimal plan

_at_Mark

select count(*) from XXX_PER_YYY where per_ind = 0; ---> 6,110,510

I made an effort to make myself clear while obfuscating the table and index information

Best Regards

Mohamed
