Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
In 12.1 Oracle introduces a new resource plan directives called PARALLEL_STMT_CRITICAL which allows critical parallel statements to bypass the parallel statement queue.
There are two options for this directive.

FALSE - The consumer group is non-critical. This is the default value
BYPASS_QUEUE - The consumer group is marked critical, and parallel statements from this consumer group will bypass the parallel statement queue

When set to BYPASS_QUEUE, the parallel statements from the specified consumer group will be executed immediately.

-- More flexibility in controlling critical work.
-- For autodop to work I/O calibration statistics must be gathered.
-- Parallel_degree_policy needs to be set to AUTO or ADAPTIVE to enable statement queuing

Note: With this setting in place it is possible that the number of parallel execution servers may exceed the value of the PARALLEL_SERVERS_TARGET initialization parameter.


 The following example shows how to setup and confirm the use of BYPASS_QUEUE  for one consumer group and PARALLEL_QUEUE_TIMEOUT for another.
