Cursors Are Not Being Shared Due to 'PX_MISMATCH' in Standby Environment (Doc ID 1467417.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 23, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 11.1 to 11.2]

 2-node RAC Active Data Guard (physical standby in open READ-ONLY mode and also running managed recovery)
 Includes 2-node RAC Primary

Some SQL run on the ADG standby are not being shared. Customer sees in v$sql_shared_cursor that reason is PX_MISMATCH.

From CURSORDUMP that was captured we see:

PARSING SQLTEXT=SELECT * FROM (SELECT guid, content_type_name, payload, payload_size, stage_id, delete_flag, comp_payload_size, comp_payload_code, MAX(stage_id) OVER (PARTITION BY guid) max_stage_num FROM <Table_Name> WHERE guid IN (:1,:2,:3,:4,:5,:6,:7 < snip >

STACK= .... Compilation environment difference Failed sharing : 2000000000000
parallel_execution_enabled = true false

This appeared to be similar to issue documented in BUG 7352775 'Many child cursors when PARALLEL_INSTANCE_GROUP set wrong' except:

 a) Ct has applied patch 7352775 on top of in their environment
 b) Service has been confirmed exists in service$ (<service_name> for this particular env)
 c) Ct is not using PARALLEL_INSTANCE_GROUP parameter
