Statistics on New, Local Index Partition Not Gathered with DBMS_STATS.GATHER_SCHEMA_STATS, Option GATHER STALE
Last updated on JUNE 29, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
- Using DBMS_STATS.GATHER_SCHEMA_STATS, option GATHER STALE, statistics are not collected on a locally partitioned index
- The GATHER EMPTY option will gather STATS (as displayed in USER_TAB_PARTITIONS), but GATHER STALE does not, even though rows are INSERT(ed) into the partition
- Only the GATHER AUTO option gathers STATS on the index partition (as observed through the data within USER_IND_PARTITIONS).
Here is an Example of the Use Case scenario:
Neither option GATHER STALE nor GATHER EMPTY populates USER_IND_PARTITIONS with information that six (non-unique) keys are already present within index, SALESMAN_ID_IX, partition SALES_JAN2000.
