Actually Joel, I'd like to tap your brain one more time.......
Oracle refers to a CPU TIME & ELAPSED TIME. What are those? Is CPU time the actual time the process has been running?
Also, from within Oracle, is there a good way to get CPU Usage in a number that makes sense? Like a percentage? And, lastly, can I find out how long a query has been 'running'? not how long it will take, but how long it has been executing? not using 'timing on', as this will run within a block.....
Thanks for your time...... Received on Wed May 27 2009 - 09:04:28 CDT
