Oracle statistics gathering - stale_percent and concurrent testing

Recommended Posts


I want to change "stale_percent" to 3 and "concurrent" to true, but I need to test it first. I need to improve statistics gathering on very large fast changing tables.

What is the best way to check before and after it will be set to check if this make any difference?

I read that I need to check parameter JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES and parallel_adaptive_multi_user before I will set "concurrent".

Could you advise what values are save when setting it?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Esu, and welcome to the forum!

Except for very volatile data, a single dbms_stats is enough.

Remember, the ONLY reason to re-analyze stats is to change execution plans. A risky thing to do in a production database.

Please read carefully:


If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Hope this helps . . .
