Interactive report performance problem over database link

Hi gurus,
I have an interactive report that retrieves values from two joined tables both placed on the same remote database. It takes 45 seconds to populate (refresh) a page after issuing a search. If I catch the actual select that is generated by apex ( the one with count(*) over ()...) and run it from sql environment, it takes 1 or 2 seconds. What on earth does consume the rest of the time and how to speed this up? I would like to awoid creating and maintaining local materialized views if possible.
Regards
Samo

Hi
APEX normally needs to return the full result set for the purposes of pagination (where you have it set to something along the lines of show x-y of z), changing this or the max row count can affect performance greatly.
The driving site hint would need to refer to the name of the view, but can be a bit temperamental with this kind of thing. The materialize hint only works for sub-factored queries (in a 'WITH blah AS(SELECT /*+ MATERIALIZE */ * FROM etc. etc.)). They tend to materialize anyway and its best not to use hints like that for production code unless there is absolutely no other option, but just sub factoring without hints can often have a profound effect on performance. For instance
WITH a AS
SELECT c1,
        c2,
        c3,
        c4,
        c5
FROM schema1.view1)
, b AS
SELECT c1,
        c2,
        c3
FROM schema1.view2)
SELECT *
FROM a, b
WHERE a.c5 = b.c3May produce a different plan or even just sub factoring one of the external tables may have an effect.
You need to try things out here and experiment and keep looking at the execution plans. You should also change Toads row fetch setting to be all 9's to get a real idea of performance.
Let me know how you get on.
Cheers
Ben

  • Interactive report performance problem over database link - Oracle Gateway

    Hello all;
    This is regarding a thread Interactive report performance problem over database link that was posted by Samo.
    The issue that I am facing is when I use Oracle function like (apex_item.check_box) the query slow down by 45 seconds.
    query like this: (due to sensitivity issue, I can not disclose real table name)
    SELECT apex_item.checkbox(1,b.col3)
    , a.col1
    , a.col2
    FROM table_one a
    , table_two b
    WHERE a.col3 = 12345
    AND a.col4 = 100
    AND b.col5 = a.col5
    table_one and table_two are remote tables (non-oracle) which are connected using Oracle Gateway.
    Now if I run above queries without apex_item.checkbox function the query return or response is less than a second but if I have apex_item.checkbox then the query run more than 30 seconds. I have resolved the issues by creating a collection but it’s not a good practice.
    I would like to get ideas from people how to resolve or speed-up the query?
    Any idea how to use sub-factoring for the above scenario? Or others method (creating view or materialized view are not an option).
    Thank you.
    Shaun S.

    Hi Shaun
    Okay, I have a million questions (could you tell me if both tables are from the same remote source, it looks like they're possibly not?), but let's just try some things first.
    By now you should understand the idea of what I termed 'sub-factoring' in a previous post. This is to do with using the WITH blah AS (SELECT... syntax. Now in most circumstances this 'materialises' the results of the inner select statement. This means that we 'get' the results then do something with them afterwards. It's a handy trick when dealing with remote sites as sometimes you want the remote database to do the work. The reason that I ask you to use the MATERIALIZE hint for testing is just to force this, in 99.99% of cases this can be removed later. Using the WITH statement is also handled differently to inline view like SELECT * FROM (SELECT... but the same result can be mimicked with a NO_MERGE hint.
    Looking at your case I would be interested to see what the explain plan and results would be for something like the following two statements (sorry - you're going have to check them, it's late!)
    WITH a AS
    (SELECT /*+ MATERIALIZE */ *
    FROM table_one),
    b AS
    (SELECT /*+ MATERIALIZE */ *
    FROM table_two),
    sourceqry AS
    (SELECT  b.col3 x
           , a.col1 y
           , a.col2 z
    FROM table_one a
        , table_two b
    WHERE a.col3 = 12345
    AND   a.col4 = 100
    AND   b.col5 = a.col5)
    SELECT apex_item.checkbox(1,x), y , z
    FROM sourceqry
    WITH a AS
    (SELECT /*+ MATERIALIZE */ *
    FROM table_one),
    b AS
    (SELECT /*+ MATERIALIZE */ *
    FROM table_two)
    SELECT  apex_item.checkbox(1,x), y , z
    FROM table_one a
        , table_two b
    WHERE a.col3 = 12345
    AND   a.col4 = 100
    AND   b.col5 = a.col5If the remote tables are at the same site, then you should have the same results. If they aren't you should get the same results but different to the original query.
    We aren't being told the real cardinality of the inners select here so the explain plan is distorted (this is normal for queries on remote and especially non-oracle sites). This hinders tuning normally but I don't think this is your problem at all. How many distinct values do you normally get of the column aliased 'x' and how many rows are normally returned in total? Also how are you testing response times, in APEX, SQL Developer, Toad SQLplus etc?
    Sorry for all the questions but it helps to answer the question, if I can.

  • Report over database link error

    Good morning all.
    I have a database link LINKA from USERA on LOCALSERVER to USERB on REMOTESERVER.
    (create database link LINKA connect to USERB identified by mypassword using validtns)
    In USERC on REMOTESERVER I have a TABLEX, with grant all on TABLEX to USERB on REMOTESERVER.
    In USERB on REMOTESERVER I have a view TABLEXV, select * from USERC.TABLEX
    From USERA on LOCALSERVER I can select * from TABLEXV@LINKA. In fact I can insert/update/delete tablexv from USERA.
    I also have a view TABLEXV on USERA, select * from TABLEXV@LINKA. I can also select/insert/update/delete from USERA.TABLEXV.
    So far so good - all working as expected.
    Then, my APEX app on LOCALSERVER, interactive report, parsing schema USERA, querying TABLEXV, I get the following:
    when "Exclude Link Column", I get the error "The requested URL /pls/apex/f was not found on server.
    when "Link to Single Row View", report displays correctly.
    when "Link to Custom Target", I get the error "The requested URL /pls/apex/f was not found on server.
    When I run the select * from TABLEXV as a regular report (i.e. not interactive), I also get the error.
    So the only time I get the report displayed correctly is using IR and "Link to Single Row View".
    However, clicking on the link (for Single Row View) I get "The requested URL /pls/apex/wwv_flow.show was not found on this server.".
    To summarize:
    - accessing table via view over database link
    - works outside of apex without issue
    - inside only works when Link to Single Row View set
    - But clicking on link fails
    I could live with just having the Link to Singe Row View option if I could disable displaying of the icon so that the user cant click on it.
    APEX 3.2.00.27
    EE Database - 10.2.0.3 (yes I know out of support)
    Remote EE Database - 10.2.0.5
    Real object names replaced to protect the innocent!
    Anyone got any clues?
    I have used remote tables many times in my APEX applications and never had this issue.

  • Problem connecting DataBase Link from windows oracle to oracle on Linux

Can any one help me?A database link is acting as a client to the target, remote database in exactly the same fashion and using exactly the same tns infrastructure as any other client trying to connect to that remote database. your ORA-12154 when querying a db link means exactly the same as if you had gotten it trying to connect with sqlplus, from the same server. Check the link SB provided. Keep in mind that the tnsnames file of concern is the one on the source database server.

  • Can we create pl/sql code over database link?

    Hi All,
    We are using Oracle 9i database.
    I want to know if we can create or modify pl/sql code (procedue, package, etc) over the database link? That means - can we create a procedure in remote database using the db link?
    Thanks,
    Dnyanesh

    yes, I can connect to the remote database directly and create/modify the packages.
    But I want the users not to create them using the db link.
    Is there any way to create the pl/sql package over database link?

  • Strange problem with Database LInk

    Hi Everyone,
    I have strange problem with Database Link in Oracle 11g Express Edition;
    There are two computers: computer-server and computer-client. Tnsnames.ora are the same on both computers ie.
    CT =
    (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = krzysztof)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVICE_NAME = XE)
    I created database link :
    Create database link zdalny
    Connect to <user_id> identified by <password>
    using ‘CT’;
    Client can’t connect with server when I am using above command. But when I change “using” for using ‘krzysztof:1521’ or using ‘krzysztof’ or using ‘server IP:1521’ – everything is ok.
    Why I am asking. Because in all materials which I am reading about Oracle command with using ‘CT’ should be working correct. But there is not. Do you know, why?
    Thanks in advance and apologize for my English.

    PS. I tried with using 'XE' - not working.Assuming that is the correct tnsnames, of course XE is not working. You don't have a tnsnames entry for 'XE'.
    You need to be aware that when using a dblink, the client is the db in which the link is defined, not the desktop from which you connect to that database.
    I think you need to start here:

    The fact that your client (db link) is a database doesn't change anything taught in the above.

  • Interactive Report Performance With Conditional Link

    Apex 3.2
    I have a interactive report.
    The underlying sql would return 127000 rows
    The sql is
    select
      lde.ods_system,
      lde.ldekey,
      msg.sendersystem, 
      msg.messagetype,
      msg.messageversion,
      msg.msgseqnumber,
      msg.alternatekey,
      msg.crudmarker,
      msg.clrbookdate,
      msg.clrbookresult,
      lower('udf_'||msg.messagetype) button,
      lde.ldekey||'.'||msg.alternatekey||'.'||msg.msgseqnumber udm_key
    from
      clr_esbmessageheader msg,
      clr_adm_systemmessage adm,
      udm_lde lde
    where
      adm.ldeid = lde.ldeid and
      msg.sendersystem = adm.system and
      msg.messagetype = adm.messagetype and
      msg.messageversion = adm.messageversion and
      msg.receiversystem = 'SCIPS'
    order by msg.clrbookdate desc
    This report only takes 1 second to display.
    I need to add a conditional link to another page, so I used
    case
    when lower('udf_'||msg.messagetype) = 'udf_distreceipt' then
    '<a class="type" href="' || apex_util.prepare_url('f?p='||:APP_ID||':52:'||:APP_SESSION||'::'||:DEBUG||':RIR'||':IR_MSG_KEY,P52_PG:'|| lde.ldekey||'.'|| msg.alternatekey ||'.'|| msg.msgseqnumber ||','|| 50, null, 'SESSION') || '"title="Go to udf_distreceipt Report">udf_distreceipt</a>'
    else 'no link' end table_link
    The sql seems to be ok, because the report accepted it, but selecting the new column and saving the report takes forever (over 2 mins)
    Now the report takes over 2 minutes to run and I still need to add more conditions.
    Have I coded the link incorrectly ?
    Gus

    Hi Gus,
    Are you wanting to put the link in the query for a specific reason?
    I had to do a similar thing in the past and just completed the column link section for the column.
    Why not just have the following in the query:
    case
    when lower('udf_'||msg.messagetype) = 'udf_distreceipt' then
    udf_distreceipt
    else null END table_link
    Then do the linking using column link section:
    You would specify your link text as #TABLE_LINK# which should then be conditionally displayed due to the case statement, then add in all the page item and values to pass across using a normal link column.
    Thanks

  • Sub Report Performance problem

    Our current software configuration is Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (10.0.2531.0) where our data is housed. Our User Interface is Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (Visual Basic) and Microsoft .NET 3.5 SP1 platform.  We use Crystal Reports 2008 (12.0.0.683) to do our reporting.
    We upgraded from Crystal Reports XI and our reports are taking a long time to render?... Is there any evidence of other companies experiencing this trouble? Are there any degraded performance issues when moving from XI to 2008?
    In some cases we utilizing a small simple sub report.
    Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Billy,
    Subreports in detail sections are never a good idea. Example, you have 100 records returned int he main report and if that field is your subreport link it causes the subreport to run 100 times. Your database is being queried 101 times.
    Also, the default time out for database is typically 1 minute, could be you need to verify your report and database so CR can "clean up" any wrong pointers.
    It's always better to do the data collection server side if and when possible, after all that's what they do best.
    Not much detail to go on so I can't say if it's a report design problem other than the above or not. It could be also that .NET takes time to load all of the CR assemblies so depending on how you have your app configured depends on the delay. If you load a dummy report when your starts up to pre-load CR runtime then subsequent reports will be much faster.
    Also check off all of the Verify Database options, you may be telling CR to verify each time which on big databases can cause a delay also.
    Thank you

    Hi
    i also faced such an issue and then i found the answer on metalink
    Error: "An Interactive Reporting Service Error has Occurred. Failed to Acquire Requested Service. Error Code: 2001" when Processing a bqy Report in Workspace. [ID 1117395.1]     
    Applies to:
    Hyperion BI+ - Version: 11.1.1.2.00 and later [Release: 11.1 and later ]
    Information in this document applies to any platform.
    Symptoms
    Obtaining the following error when trying to process a BQY that uses an Essbase data source in Workspace:
    "An Interactive Reporting Service error has occurred. Failed to acquire requested service. Error Code: 2001".
    Cause
    The name of the data source in the CMC contained the machine name in fully qualified name format whereas the OCE contained the machine name only. This mismatch in machine names caused the problem. Making the machine name identical in both cases resolved the problem.
    Solution
    Ensure that the name of the data source as specified in the OCE in Interactive Reporting Studio matches the name specified in the CMC tool in the field "Enter the name of the data source".
    In fact, all fields need to match between the OCE and the CMC Data Source.

  • Interactive Reports - Performance Issue

    Hi All
    We have been getting ORA-04030: out of process memory … more and more frequently since first implementing Interactive Reports. From Enterprise Manager we had a look at the most costly queries and the one that stands out the most is:
    SELECT *
    FROM WWV_FLOW_WORKSHEET_CONDITIONS
    WHERE CONDITION_TYPE = ‘HIGHLIGHT’
      AND WORKSHEET_ID = :B2
      AND SECURITY_GROUP_ID = :B1
    ORDER BY HIGHLIGHT_SEQUENCE, NAME I have done all I can with the memory configuration and we are in the process of upgrading the servers to 64 bit Linux.
    However, I noticed that WWV_FLOW_WORKSHEET_CONDITIONS table has 400,000 rows and the above query is performing a full table scan on it. As the query is run each time an IR report is viewed, this could account for the problems. The DBAs are of the opinion that the indexing and query are optimal and cannot be improved, so the obvious solution is to archive and purge the table.
    Of the 400k rows, 80% are session values linked to sessions that no longer exists. It would appear that each time a user adds a filter or highlight to an interactive report it is recorded as a session value in the WWV_FLOW_WORKSHEET_CONDITIONS table. When the user logs out and closes the session, the values remain in the table and aren't cleared!!!? We currently average about 90 users a day with 60,000+ page requests so 400,000 rows is way more than I would expect to see.
    Am I missing something? How do redundant session values get purged from the ir flows tables? Is there a (supported) way for me to clear them?
    This is a critical issue for me now and I have raised an SR on metalink, but if the forum could offer some advice or assistance it would be very much appreciated.
    Cheers

    Hi Varad
    Thanks for your help. I have had a good play with the purge function and now I'm more confused than ever. First let me explain my test scenario: I have an application with an interactive report in which I am logged in and able to make session changes (without saving the reports). I am observing the session activity on the Interactive Report using the apex_application_page_ir_rpt view which is set to filter on the application and page number for the Interactive Report I am testing.
    Test 1
    User logs into application, adds a filter to the report.
    Result: A new row appears in the apex_application_page_ir_rpt view
    Administrator Purges all sessions > 10secs old
    Result: The new row is removed from apex_application_page_ir_rpt view
    Test 2
    User logs into application, adds a filter to the report.
    Result: A new row appears in the apex_application_page_ir_rpt view
    User logs out of application
    Result: The new row remains in the apex_application_page_ir_rpt view
    Administrator Purges all sessions > 10 secs old
    Result: The new row still remains in the apex_application_page_ir_rpt view view
    I hope that makes sense. Why would the session values not be cleared if the user logs out first? Why are they not then cleared if all the sessions are purged?
    I am hoping that someone else can repeat the test and see if they find the same result.
    Cheers

  • SQL report performance problem

    I have a SQL classic report in Apex 4.0.2 and database 11.2.0.2.0 with a performance problem.
    The report is based on a PL/SQL function returning a query. The query is based on a view and pl/sql functions. The Apex parsing schema has select grant on the view only, not the underlying objects.
    The generated query runs in 1-2 sec in sqlplus (logged in as the Apex parsing schema user), but takes many minutes in Apex. I have found, by monitoring the database sessions via TOAD, that the explain plan in the Apex and sqlplus sessions are very different.
    The summary:
    In sqlplus SELECT STATEMENT ALL_ROWS Cost: 3,695                                                                            
    In Apex SELECT STATEMENT ALL_ROWS Cost: 3,108,551                                                        
    What could be the cause of this?
    I found a blog and Metalink note about different explain plans for different users. They suggested to set optimizer_secure_view_merging='FALSE', but that didn't help.

    Hmmm, it runs fast again in SQL Workshop. I didn't expect that, because both the application and SQL Workshop use SYS.DBMS_SYS_SQL to parse the query.
    Only the explain plan doesn't show anything.
    To add: I changed the report source to the query the pl/sql function would generate, so the selects are the same in SQL Workshop and in the application. Still in the application it's horribly slow.
    So, Apex does do something different in the application compared to SQL Workshop.

  • Interactive Reports - how to add a link to a document?

    Hi there,
    I have an interactive report that displays a list of items, I would like to add a column which displays a link for each item in the report, the link should display the Word/Excel document which is located somewhere on our network. The path to the document is stored in the table along with the items. Does anybody know how I can do this?
    Thanks...

    I got an answer from the Edge Commons dream team and I am very grateful to them :
    "The problem that you bumped into was that you hadn't included a valid URL so far. We weren't sure if you wanted to include them within the SVG file or if you wanted to implement the functionality within Edge Animate. We came up with a solution for the latter one, with a simple switch in the js code:
    You have to type in the appropriate URL of course for all the cases."
    I have to share the final result:

  • Interactive report column with an external link -  Sort, chart functions

    interesting.... the message text did not make it into the post (twice). But edit seems to work.
    Our problem....
    We have an interactive report with a column that in some cases will contain information allowing us to build a link. We have updated the report query to return the data tagged with the <a href..... on rows that can be links. The links are displayed and function correctly. However, if we click on the column header so we do something like sort, the page hangs. If we try to create a report using this column we get an error.
    We have also tried marking the column as a link in the IR definition. With that design, the sort and reporting isn't an issue, but all the rows are links, which is not what we need.
    Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem?
    Thanks, Nann

    Hi Peter,
    Thanks for your suggestion. We ended up with a slight variation in the design that allowed us to mark the column as a link.
    Basically we have a column just for the link.
    In our query we now have 2 columns. One that builds the url, the other the text we want displayed as a link.
    If that row should not have a link in it the query returns null for both columns.
    We only display the link column in the report.
    We use the url column in the link definition .
    We've disabled the sort and other functions on this column.
    All works as we wanted.
    Thanks
    Nann
