Portal 11g Performance is severely affected once the database (in which the repository resides) is upgraded from Oracle Server 10g to 11g.
No performance issues noted in the following scenarios:
- Oracle Portal 11g (upgraded or newly installed) in Oracle Server 10g.
- Oracle Portal 11g (newly installed) in Oracle Server 10g.
- Oracle Portal 11g (newly installed) in Oracle Server 11g.
Performance issues noted in the following scenarios:
- Oracle Portal 11g (in which the repository resides) is upgraded from Oracle Server 10g to 11g.
Problem query may be identified using AWR/Statspak output.
Example query in this case:
WHERE NAME = 'ALL_OBJECTS'
AND OWNER = 'PORTAL'
AND GRANTEE_TYPE = 'USER'
AND GRANTEE_GROUP_ID = 0
AND GRANTEE_USER_ID = 3
/*+ ORDERED */
FROM WWSEC_FLAT$ F,
WHERE P.NAME = 'ALL_OBJECTS'
AND P.OWNER = 'PORTAL'
AND P.GRANTEE_TYPE = 'GROUP'
AND P.GRANTEE_GROUP_ID = F.GROUP_ID
AND P.GRANTEE_USER_ID = 0
AND F.PERSON_ID = 3
ORDER BY OBJECT_TYPE_NAME,
An Explain Plan of the above query indicates it is using SKIP SCAN instead of RANGE SCAN:
SORT (UNIQUE) (Cost=107 Cardinality=2 Bytes=22)
VIEW (Cost=106 Cardinality=2 Bytes=22)
INDEX (SKIP SCAN) OF WWSEC_SYSP_IX6 (INDEX) (Cost=18 Cardinality=1 Bytes=46)
HASH JOIN (Cost=87 Cardinality=1 Bytes=55)
INDEX (SKIP SCAN) OF WWSEC_FLAT_IX1 (INDEX) (Cost=17 Cardinality=15 Bytes=135)
TABLE ACCESS (BY INDEX ROWID) OF WWSEC_SYS_PRIV$ (TABLE) (Cost=70 Cardinality=1 Bytes=46)
INDEX (SKIP SCAN) OF WWSEC_SYSP_IX2 (INDEX) (Cost=7 Cardinality=854)
Oracle Portal 11g repository database is upgraded from Oracle Server 10g to 11g.
