What the Heck is the Oracle Optimizer Doing?
Neil Chandler, Chandler Systems Ltd.
When Oracle optimizes your SQL, it transforms it and works out what it thinks is the best way to optimizer your statement to retrieve your data as quickly as possible. This presentation will look at what Oracle is doing, using the 10053 trace functionality to show why the optimizer is making it's decisions and how your configuration influences those decisions.
