Symptoms

CTAS for a nested table fails with next error as reported in the alert log:

ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [qkaIsLoadEquiPartitioned_1], [6],[5], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], [], []


The incident detail trace file shows a current sql like:

----- Current SQL Statement for this session (sql_id=51ca1n1xnquqt) -----
create table stage_trkd.st_company_periods_idx3
nested table CPER_PERIOD_SET
store as N_ST_COMPANY_PERIODS_IDX3 ( tablespace TS_SNAPSHOT)
nologging
tablespace TS_SNAPSHOT as
select * from stage_trkd.vst_company_periods_idx3


The nested table is based on a view with a 'with' clause using a  /*+materialize*/ hint for performance reasons.

The /*+materialize*/ hint normally improves performance because a subquery defined by a 'with' clause is materialized into a Global Temporary Table (GTT).

Removing the /*+materialize*/ hints, the CTAS succeeds but is is too slow for practical use, e.g. takes about 4 hours for nearly 800000 rows.


The call stack from the tarce file shows functions like:
