    Unhappy Unanswered: Strugling to Optimise SQL

    Dear all,

    I am optimising a SQL first time, can anyone help me how should I start
    and what steps I need to take.
    Any PDF or doc or web content would be appreciated.

    I will be using Autotrace to optimise SQL.
    I will not be able to post SQL, as it is ristricted.

    This is what I am getting from Autotrace.
    129 recursive calls
    0 db block gets
    18 consistent gets
    0 physical reads
    0 redo size
    2086 bytes sent via SQL*Net to client
    377 bytes received via SQL*Net from client
    1 SQL*Net roundtrips to/from client
    0 sorts (memory)
    0 sorts (disk)
    0 rows processed

    For every table listed with a FULL SCAN, make sure that the columns in BOTH tables used to define the table relationships are indexed.

    Also make sure that your table statistics are up-to-date.

    I guess, you don't really expect a serious answer without posting your select statement and the table- and index structures.

    But - according to the posted execution plan - with 9 full table scans on 6 tables you will be dead as a rock in every real environment with real data in it ...
