UTLRP is running very slow with SDO objects after upgrade on 12.2

(Doc ID 2258213.1)

Last updated on MAY 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Spatial and Graph - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


An upgrade to was completed  in less than 45 minutes but utlrp.sql has run for about 10 hours.

This behavior occurs only in databases with LARGE spatial indexes.

The upgrade process is invalidating them and running the following:

update /*+ no_parallel(t) */ "<SCHEMA_NAME>"."<TABLE_NAME>" t .....
begin dbms_utility.validate(:1,:2,:3,:4); end;
