Well, flushing the shared pool every time you execute the query still wouldn't work... because even the first time the query is compiled... it is compiled without looking at the bind values. Also, flushing the shared pool every time you execute a query is so sad I could cry.

As far as forcing the query plan you'd like with /*+ index */ hints (as well as nested-loops, hash, ordered, etc, etc) defeats the purpose of the CBO in the first place. One thing that the CBO has taught me is that regardless how smart I think I am at query optimization... once you're combining dozens of tables in all sorts of inner-views, unions, sorts, and merges... the CBO really can be smarter than me.

Also for my example, I could be running the same query on hundreds of different schemata, each of which have the same table structure, but contain a different demographic of data. The CBO is going to pick the proper execution path for the schema it is being executed in.

Anyway... I'm familiar with all of those issues, and I'm really going to end up just altering the application code in which this query is executing, so that I can parameterize the sql text itself (so I don't have to bind these literals). I was just curious if you knew some cool trick that I didn't. :-D

Thanks, though.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
