This problem can occur on any platform.


When dealing with ORA-01555 in a distributed environment, if the error appears on a remote node, the query duration can sometimes be very low, especially when compared to the undo_retention for that node. This could appear as an incorrect behavior, be it from the error perspective or from the query duration perspectiv, but is actually correct.
