SQL Performance issue: Using user defined function with group by

Hi Everyone,
im new here and I really could need some help on a weird performance issue. I hope this is the right topic for SQL performance issues.
Well ok, i create a function for converting a date from timezone GMT to a specified timzeone.
CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION I3S_REP_1.fnc_user_rep_date_to_local (date_in IN date, tz_name_in IN VARCHAR2) RETURN date
IS
tz_name VARCHAR2(100);
date_out date;
BEGIN
SELECT
to_date(to_char(cast(from_tz(cast( date_in AS TIMESTAMP),'GMT')AT
TIME ZONE (tz_name_in) AS DATE),'dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss'),'dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')
INTO date_out
FROM dual;
RETURN date_out;
END fnc_user_rep_date_to_local;The following statement is just an example, the real statement is much more complex. So I select some date values from a table and aggregate a little.
select
stp_end_stamp,
count(*) noi
from step
where
stp_end_stamp
BETWEEN
to_date('23-05-2009 00:00:00','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')      
AND
to_date('23-07-2009 00:00:00','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')
group by
stp_end_stampThis statement selects ~70000 rows and needs ~ 70ms
If i use the function it selects the same number of rows ;-) and takes ~ 4 sec ...
select
fnc_user_rep_date_to_local(stp_end_stamp,'Europe/Berlin'),
count(*) noi
from step
where
stp_end_stamp
BETWEEN
to_date('23-05-2009 00:00:00','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')      
AND
to_date('23-07-2009 00:00:00','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')
group by
fnc_user_rep_date_to_local(stp_end_stamp,'Europe/Berlin')I understand that the DB has to execute the function for each row.
But if I execute the following statement, it takes only ~90ms ...
select
fnc_user_rep_date_to_gmt(stp_end_stamp,'Europe/Berlin','ny21654'),
noi
from
select
stp_end_stamp,
count(*) noi
from step
where
stp_end_stamp
BETWEEN
to_date('23-05-2009 00:00:00','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')      
AND
to_date('23-07-2009 00:00:00','dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss')
group by
stp_end_stamp
)The execution plan for all three statements is EXACTLY the same!!!
Usually i would say, that I use the third statement and the world is in order. BUT I'm working on a BI project with a tool called Business Objects and it generates SQL, so my hands are bound and I can't make this tool to generate the SQL as a subselect.
My questions are:
Why is the second statement sooo much slower than the third?
and
Howcan I force the optimizer to do whatever he is doing to make the third statement so fast?
I would really appreciate some help on this really weird issue.
Thanks in advance,
Andi

Hi,
The execution plan for all three statements is EXACTLY the same!!!Not exactly. Plans are the same - true. They uses slightly different approach to call function. See:
drop table t cascade constraints purge;
create table t as select mod(rownum,10) id, cast('x' as char(500)) pad from dual connect by level <= 10000;
exec dbms_stats.gather_table_stats(user, 't');
create or replace function test_fnc(p_int number) return number is
begin
    return trunc(p_int);
end;
explain plan for select id from t group by id;
select * from table(dbms_xplan.display(null,null,'advanced'));
explain plan for select test_fnc(id) from t group by test_fnc(id);
select * from table(dbms_xplan.display(null,null,'advanced'));
explain plan for select test_fnc(id) from (select id from t group by id);
select * from table(dbms_xplan.display(null,null,'advanced'));Output:

  • Using User Defined Function is SQL

    Hi
    I did the following test to see how expensive it is to use user defined functions in SQL queries, and found that it is really expensive.
    Calling SQRT in SQL costs less than calling a dummy function that just returns
    the parameter value; this has to do with context switchings, but how can we have
    a decent performance compared to Oracle provided functions?
    Any comments are welcome, specially regarding the performance of UDF in sql
    and for solutions.
    create or replace function f(i in number) return number is
    begin
      return i;

    I find that inline SQL is bad for performance but
    good to simplify SQL. I keep thinking that it should
    be possible somehow to use a function to improve
    performance but have never seen that happen.inline SQL is only bad for performance if the database design (table structure, indexes etc.) is poor or the way the SQL is written is poor.
    Context switching between SQL and PL/SQL for a User defined function is definitely a way to slow down performance.
    Obviously built-in Oracle functions are going to be quicker than User-defined functions because they are written into the SQL and PL/SQL engines and are optimized for the internals of those engines.
    There are a few things you can do to improve function
    performance, shaving microseconds off execution time.
    Consider using the NOCOPY hints for your parameters
    to use pointers instead of copying values. NOCOPY
    is a hint rather than a directive so it may or may
    not work. Optimize any SQL in the called function.
    Don't do anything in loops that does not have to be
    done inside a loop.Well, yes, but it's even better to keep all processing in SQL where possible and only resort to PL/SQL when absolutely necessary.
    The on-line documentation has suggested that using a
    DETERMINISTIC function can improve performance but I
    have not been able to demonstrate this and there are
    notes in Metalink suggesting that this does not
    happen. My experience is that DETERMINISTIC
    functions always get executed. There's supposed to
    be a feature in 11g that acually caches function
    return values.Deterministic functions will work well if used in conjunction with a function based index. That can improve access times when querying data on the function results.
    You can use DBMS_PROFILER to get run-time statistics
    for each line of your function as it is executed to
    help tune it.Or code it as SQL. ;)

  • Multi mapping question using user defined function

    Hi,
    I have a message with multiple occuring nodes (i.e. one message with multiple orders (header + detail)) that I need to map to a idoc. I need to filter out of the source based on order type (in header) from creating an idoc.. How do I do it using user defined function + message mappping ?
    mad

    All - Thanks much.. Here is my requirement that is no solved by regular mapping
    <Root>
    <Recordset>
      <Ordheader>
        <ord>
        <ord_type>
      </Ordheader>
       <Ord_line>
         <ord>
         <Linnum>
       </Ord_line>
      </Recordset>
    <Recordset>
      <Ordheader>
        <ord>
        <ord_type>
      </Ordheader>
       <Ord_line>
         <ord>
         <Linnum>
       </Ord_line>
    </Recordset>
    <Root>
    As you see above, each recordset has order transaction. One Root message can contain multiple of these. So, when I map to the IDOC, I want to filter out any ord_type <> XX.
    If I use regular graphical map, it only looks at first recordset and accepts all or rejects all.
    I need to use UDF. In the UDF, what comes in as input ? Resultset is output -correct ? Now how do I usse graphical mapping with UDF to generate the correct target info

  • How to use pl/sql code as ODI user defined function

    Hi All,
    i have a pl/sql code and i want to create ODI user defined function using this code .
    please find the pl/sql code below:
    ============================
    declare
    v_no_of_duplicate_rec number := 0;
    begin
    select count(*)
    into v_no_of_duplicate_rec
    from ( select 1

    if v_no_of_duplicate_rec = 0 then
    return 'N';
    else
    return 'Y';
    end if;
    end if;
    ==========================
    please help me how to achieve the same .
    Thanks
    Vinod

    2 ways:
    a. implement logic in odi function directly: getCount, Oracle implementation:
    select case count(1) when 0 then 'N' else 'Y' end
    from hr.employees
    when you use this function to refresh a variable, the refresh statement should only be getCount, you shoueld not write select getCount from dual, otherwise it will become
    select select .... from ... from dual
    b. if your logic is complex, I suggest to write function directly in your database, then call this function in your ODI function
    eg:
    CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION hr.test RETURN varchar2 IS
    tmpVar NUMBER;
    BEGIN
    select count(1) into tmpVar from hr.employees;
    if tmpVar=0 then
    return 'N';
    else
    return 'Y';
    end if;
    END test;
    then create a ODI function, Oracle implementation is
    hr.test
    in your variable refresh statement, you can write select getCount from dual
    if you use the odi function in other locations expect for refreshing variable, the idea is similar

  • Error in conditional map using User Defined Function

    All,
    In my mapping I basically have a user defined function that returns the filename of my inbound file from the adapter-specific message attributes (file adapter).  I know this is coded properly because if I simply assign this function to my destination field I can see the filename in the payload XML.
    However if I conditionally check that returned value using if,then,else I get an error message stating:
    "During the application mapping com/sap/xi/tf/_MaterialData2ZcustProdMastMulti_ a com.sap.aii.utilxi.misc.api.BaseRuntimeException was thrown: RuntimeException in Message-Mapping transformation"
    Essentially in my if I'm checking if the value returned by my user defined function is equal to the constant "SOMECONSTANT" then I'm setting my destination field to some other constant value.  Otherwise it's equal to a different constant value.
    Any thoughts?

    Claus,
    Thanks for the help.  I actually had figured the problem out on my own.  Sorry for not updating the thread sooner.  What happened was this (as I suspected it wasn't related to my user defined function).  For the newbies out there (of which I'm one) the problem was I was comparing strings in the graphical mapping tool using the Boolean "EQUALS" rather than the Text "EQUALSS".
    Can you give yourself points for solving

  • Error while using user defined function in reports

    Hi,
    When I use the below user defined function in oracle reports I got the wrong number of arguments error
    select test_function(id,a_number,v_date-14,b_number) from dual;
    If I remove -14 from the argument it works. But iIneed to subtract 14 days from the date.
    Thanks for your help.

    select test_function(id,a_number,v_date-14,b_number) from dual;
    you have to give the command like this to_date(v_date,'dd-mon-yyyy')-14
    because the v_Date you choose in the parameter form is not having the corrent date format
    the format dd-mon-yyyy is the format in which v_date is passed by the user.

    We also want to set the extractors to run during Message Processing .
    Do you have any inputs on how this might affect the system performance?
    Any best practices, previous experiences or thoughts on that?
    Some of my questions:
    How many Filters/Extractors would be a limit to not affect too much the messaging processing performance?
    Running the extractors during message processing would greatly affect the performance? When to run the extractors in a batch job instead of runtime?
    Any input is greatly appreciated.
    Regards,
    José Omar

    Hi José ,
    We are also planning to use User-Defined Search feature in our PI system. Could you please let me know whether or not were you able to use this in your PI productive environment?
    Additionally , if you were able to use it can you please let me know the performance?
    Thanks in advance

  • How to use user defined object with linked button

    Hi experts
    Can I use user defined table data with linked button. If yes then how. plz give me sample examples.
    Regards
    Gorge

    If you have an UDO in your form, or any other, the FormDataLoad eventhandler should be used.
    Take care, it is not inside the eventhandler.
    for VB:
    Select SBO_APPLICATION in the classes, and select FormDataLoad event
    Private Sub SBO_Application_FormDataEvent(ByRef BusinessObjectInfo As SAPbouiCOM.BusinessObjectInfo, ByRef BubbleEvent As Boolean) Handles SBO_Application.FormDataEvent
    in C#
    Add a new eventhandler as
    // declaration
    SBO_Application.FormDataEvent += new SAPbouiCOM._IApplicationEvents_FormDataEventEventHandler(ref SBO_Application_FormDataEvent);
    // eventhandler:
    public void SBO_Application_FormDataEvent(ref SAPbouiCOM.BusinessObjectInfo BusinessObjectInfo, out bool BubbleEvent)

  • Problems with After Report trigger Updating using User-defined functions

    Hi,
    I have a report which uses SQL to select data that uses a user-defined stored function in the WHERE clause.
    I use the same SQL in the After Report trigger with and UPDATE statement to flag all records selected as being run.
    Data is being selected by the report no problem, but the records are not being updated. In a test, If I remove the conditions using the user functions, the records update as expected. In Live conditions I must have these conditions in the script.
    I originally tried putting the UPDATE in a formual column, but that would not fire on records where that page was not paged through (or paged to end) in the Runtime Previewer.
    Can anyone advise?

    In case anyone is interested.
    The issue was that the stored functions have roles assigned for security.
    PL/SQL for After Report doesn't seem to recognise the roles having been assigned for the report, so the implicit cursor update/select I had wouldn't work.
    I changed the SELECT into an explicit CURSOR and introduced a FOR LOOP, keeping the UPDATE as an implicit statement.
    I know see this was more of a PL/SQL issues than a report one, but such is life. So if anyone feels the urge to move it to the PL/SQL forum, then feel free!!
    Have a problem free afternoon. :-)

  • Using User Defined Function in BO XI3.1 Universe

    Hi Everyone,
    Is it possible to call a database defined function in a universe?   I would like to create a universe object to call the function then make the object available to users as a dimension when creating reports.  If it's possible, can someone provide the details on how to crease such an object. 
    I'm using BO XI 3.1 and SQL Server 2005.
    Thanks.

  • Strange errors when using user defined function in where clause

    Hello,
    I am having trouble with a function that, when used in the where clause of a select will cause an error if the first column selected is of type INTEGER. Not sure whether I am doing something wrong or whether this is a bug.
    Here is a very simple test case:
    create table test(
    col1 integer not null,
    col2 varchar(20) ascii default ''
    insert into test values(1,'2011-03-15 05:00:00')
    insert into test values(2,'2011-03-15 07:00:00')
    CREATE FUNCTION BTR_TAG  RETURNS VARCHAR AS
        VAR ret VARCHAR(20);
      SET ret='2011-03-15 06:00:00';
      RETURN ret;
    Select * from test where col2 >= BTR_TAG()
    Select col1,col2 from test where col2 >= BTR_TAG()
    =>  Error in assignment;-3016 POS(1) Invalid numeric constant
    Select '',* from test where col2 >= BTR_TAG()
    Select col2,col1 from test where col2 >= BTR_TAG()
    => works as it should
