Goal

There are ways to disable direct path read for SQL statements as follows:

1. event 10949 level 1
2. _serial_direct_read = NEVER

However, there are no direct methods to force the direct path read operations which are faster for some SQL statements.

Sometimes, the same SQL that used to run in direct path read suddenly changed to conventional cache reads causing slow performance.

Goal of this document is to provide a method to force direct path read for such SQL statements.
