Stale_Stats of Sub Partition Index Reported Incorrectly in Dba_Tab_Statistics (Doc ID 1050294.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 02, 2017

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.2 to 10.2.0.3 [Release 10.2]

Symptoms

When we load data into a subpartition, we see that the indexes for other
subpartitions are marked as stale even though the data loaded has not changed
anything in those indexes (because they are for another subpartition).

The question is why are they being asked to gather stats on indexes which
should not have been changed (i.e why the index is marked as having stale
stats) ?
