Symptoms

Create Materialized view statement hangs and never completes. It seems to wait a long time on "asynch descriptor resize" event. The same statement when run by itself or inside a create table as select statement finishes in less than a minute.

This wait event "asynch descriptor resize" indicates that the OS kernel is waiting for asynchronous IO to complete before it can re-size parameters to handle IO better.

Problem statement:

create materialized view test
as
select * from
(select /*+ noparallel(VM) */ V.FIRST_DAY_OF_MO_DT,
VM.VENDOR_VNAME as LAWSON_VNDR_NM,
V.VNDR_ID,
sum(V.SPEND_AMT) as SPEND_AMT
from <MVIEW NAME> V
left outer join SRC_APVENMAST_LAWSON VM on trim(VM.VENDOR)=V.VNDR_ID
where V.VNDR_ID Not Like '%9042'  
and (V.FIRST_DAY_OF_MO_DT, V.VNDR_ID) not in
(select/*+ hash_aj */
M.FIRST_DAY_OF_MO_DT,
M.vndr_id
from roi.MV_MANUF_MINUS_VNDR_MO M
)
group by VM.VENDOR_VNAME,V.VNDR_ID,V.FIRST_DAY_OF_MO_DT
) where SPEND_AMT is not null or SPEND_AMT <> 0;
