Performance problem with sdn_nn - new 10g install

I am having a performance problem with sdn_nn after migrating to a new machine. The old Oracle version was The new is 10g. The new machine is faster in general. Most (non-spatial) batch processes run in half the time. However, the below statement is radically slower. The below statement ran in 45 minutes before. On the new machine it hasn't finished after 10 hours. I am able to get a 5% sample of the customers to finish in 45 minutes.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to approach this problem? Any chance something isn't installed correctly on the new machine (the nth version of the query finishe, albeit 20 times slower)?
Appreciate any help. Thanks.

create table nearest_store
select /*+ ordered */
b.store_id nearest_store,
round(mdsys.sdo_nn_distance(1),4) distance
from customers a,
stores b
where mdsys.sdo_nn(
'sdo_num_res=1, unit=mile',
) = 'TRUE'

customers 110,000 (involved in this query)
stores 28,000
Here is the execution plan on the current machine:
I can't capture the execution plan on the old database. It is gone. I don't remember it being any different from the above (full scan customers, probe stores index once for each row in customers).
I am trying the query without the create table (just doing a count). I'll let you know on that one.
I am at
Here is how I created the index:
create index stores_sidx
on stores(geometry)
indextype is mdsys.spatial_index LOCAL
Note that the stores table is partitioned by range on store type. There are three store types (each in its own partition). The query returns the nearest store of each type (three rows per customer). This is by design (based on the documented behavior of sdo_nn).
In addition to running the query without the CTAS, I am also going try running it on a different machine tonight. I let you know how that turns out.
The reason I ask about the install, is that the Database Quick Installation Guide for Solaris says this:
"If you intend to use Oracle JVM or Oracle interMedia, you must install the Oracle Database 10g Products installation type from the Companion CD. This installation optimizes the performance of those products on your system."
And, the Database Installlation Guide says:
"If you plan to use Oracle JVM or Oracle interMedia, Oracle strongly recommends that you install the natively compiled Java libraries (NCOMPs) used by those products from the Oracle Database 10g Companion CD. These libraries are required to improve the performance of the products on your platform."
Based on that, I am suspicious that maybe I have the product installed on the new machine, but not correctly (forgot to set fast=true).
Let me know if you think of anything else you'd like to see. Thanks.

  • A performance problem with the new iTunes(7)

    I'm having music playback issues with the new version. While playing any type of music file, it starts to falter/fidget(this is as far as my english go) when I try to run a game, or some other not-too CPU intensive application.
    I checked the priority of both the applications and they all seem to be set to normal.
    This issue never accured in iTunes 6 and I haven't changed any settings following the update.
    PC specs are below.

    I'm having this exact problem and here's my fix (which I must say doesn't really fix much for me).
    -- <Fix> --
    Make sure you close any other applications that would possibly use the soundcard. It may very well be a CPU usage issue, but this is what I've found to work.
    -- </fix> --
    I find this extremely annoying, seeing as though I use programs such as Skype and MSN for voice, which with iTunes 6 I could do 15 different things involving the soundcard and/or videocard and/or processor with no hitches. Not the case here.
    I can't even run a simple game like TextTwist and play a song in itunes7, let alone switch between listening to something and sequencing in fruity loops, or record audio while playing a song.
    I guess I could stop complaining and use windows media player, but what can you say, itunes is the most organized and convenient source for music.

  • Having problems with brand new battery installed...Help please!

    Here's my problem. I just recently replaced the battery on my 13" Macbook. The brand new battery ordered from Apple arrived on Saturday and up until last night everything was great. Now all of a sudden the computer is doing the same things it did with the old battery. I am getting the green light on the MagSafe Adapter even though the battery is not fully charged. I am also alternating between "Not Charging" on the battery icon and a "X" on the icon.
    I did some reading and tried resetting the PRAM and SMC. I even uninstalled Leopard and reinstalled Tiger (updating everything afterwards), thinking maybe it was a software issue. (I just recently installed Leopard and hoped it was just a bad install.) None of that really seems to work.
    There is one slight exception- the SMC reset. After I do the SMC reset I get the amber light from the adapter, the icon shows charging and all is well for about 15 to 30 minutes. Then I am back at square one.
    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or ideas on what could be going on. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    It seems like you have eliminated all the easy fixes for your problem - what is left is the computer itself. Call Apple (800-275-2273) and explain the troubleshooting you have already done. They should set up a repair for your computer. If it is out of warranty you may have to pay for the repair.
    Best of luck.

  • Performance problems with new Java Tiger style recommendations

    Performance problems with jdk 1.5 on Linux plattform
    (not tested on Windows, might be the same)
    using the new style recommendations.
    I need fast Vector loops for high speed mathematical calculations, some
    hints about the fastest way to program that loop would be also great!
    After refactoring using the new features from java 1.5 (as recommended from
    SUN) I lost performance significantly:
    using a vector:
    public Vector<unit> units;
    The new code (recommended from SUN for Java Tiger for redesign):
    for (unit u: units) u.accumulate();
    runs more than 30% slower than the old code:
    for (int i = 0; i < units.size(); i++) units.elementAt(i).accumulate();
    I expected the opposite.
    Is there any information available that helps?
    The following additional information I got from Mr. Shankar Unni:
    I got some fairly anomalous results comparing ArrayList and Vector: for the
    1.5-style loops, ArrayList was faster then Vector, but for a loop with get()
    calls, Vector was faster. Vector was even faster than that using
    elementAt(), which was a surprise:
    For a million summing iterations over a 100-element array:
    vector elementAt loop took 3446 ms.
    vector get loop took 3796 ms.
    vector iterator loop took 5469 ms.
    arraylist get loop took 4136 ms.
    arraylist iterator loop took 4668 ms.

  • [SOLVED][GRUB]Install problem with the new method

    it is not my first install of Arch Linux but I have a problem with this new kind of installation method, especially with GRUB.
    Here is my hard drives configuration :
    /dev/sda1 -> SSD 120 GB ntfs (windows)
    /dev/sdb1 -> HD 1 TB ext4 (data)
    /dev/sdc :
    /dev/sdc1 -> ext2 /boot
    /dev/sdc2 -> swap
    /dev/sdc3 -> ext4 /
    /dev/sdc5 -> ext4 /home
    During the installation, I installed grub (with grub-install) in /dev/sdc. I assumed it was the correct drive to install it but apparently not, Windows starts automatically and I don't have the grub menu.
    Should I install my system again or is there a way to boot on the livecd and install it ?
    Should I :
    1) mount /dev/sdc3 in /mnt then /dev/sdc1 in /mnt/boot and finally /dev/sdc5 in /mnt/home
    2) pacstrap /mnt grub-bios
    3) arch-chroot
    4) grub-install
    Thank you.

    If you set whatever drive "/dev/sdc" is (brand and model) to boot first in the BIOS, all you need to do is install a bootloader on Arch. You don't even need a separate boot partition.

    The problem is that I cannot select another hard drive. The only one available for the boot order is the Samsung 830 series (/dev/sda with Windows).
    The other options are the CD drive and removable disk.
    I checked that this morning, maybe I was too tired. I will check again this evening.
    But if I am right and I cannot select my intel SSD (containing my arch setup) for the boot order, would the solution I described work ? I don't see why not but my knowledge are basic in Linux.

  • Performance issue with brand new intel iMac extreme

    I am at a loss to explain a problem I've been having and I thought I might put it out to you guys.
    In September I purchased a macbook Pro (2.4 ghz, 4 GB RAM) to use in video editing with Final Cut Pro, and for the most part I've been thrilled. I use 1TB LaCie external drives connected via FW800, and perform Multiclip editing with 4-5 video streams at a time and only on occasion have dropped frames during the editing process.
    In December I determined that I needed to have an additional system, and thought a 2.8Ghz Intel iMac extreme would be an excellent choice, since for the same price I could get a little more power in the processor, more hard drive space and a bigger screen to work on. When we picked up the new system in the store (The Grove Apple Store in LA), we had them upgrade the memory to 4GB.
    Since day one we have had performance issues, including problems playing streaming and DVD video, severe delays mounting and unmounting drives (firewire and USB) and application images, and freezing while doing even simple tasks like printing or checking email. These problems occur even while there are no external drives are connected. I have none of these issues with the Macbook Pro, which has virtually an identical set of programs installed, and both running the same version of Leopard.
    I already took the original iMac back to the store, and they exchanged it, but did not have 4GB sets of RAM in stock so they took the RAM from the original machine and put it in the new one. They said if I continued to have problems then it was most likely the RAM and I should come back when they got more in stock. I DID have the same problems with the new machine, and took it back to the Apple Store and they swapped the memory. It seemed to improve the issue, but now I'm seeing the same severe performance issues again.
    All tech support can do is tell me to do a PRAM reset, which seems to improve things very temporarily (but that may be my imagination) or have me restart, which at least has the ability to make the printing of documents capable.
    What I'm wondering is if it is likely that the RAM is the issue and I just got another bad batch, or if the iMac has some weird glitch that isn't present in the macbook Pro...?? Or could I have possibly gotten 2 bad systems in a row? It's extremely frustrating, and I KNOW it shouldn't be this way! It's so bad I get better performance out of my single-core G5 tower! How do I get a good working system that operates like it should? Am I better off getting another Macbook Pro? I'd rather not for several reasons...
    I have xbench on both the MBP and the iMac and can provide test numbers if they'll help, as well as any other info.
    Thank you so much for reading my novella of a post and also for any insight you have!

    I got the same problem with my MacBook when it still was new in may 2006. It was supposed to be one of the faster Laptops around but it was soooo slow it drove me nuts. I can only advise to have a look if there is something hugging up your RAM and run some tests using these programs on your machine:
    If they show any unusual results you might have your problem...
    As to my problem with the MacBook: I did a complete re-install (writing the harddisk over with zeroes) and suddenly everything was just fine. (But be sure to back all your files before that, I learned this one the hard way.) I know it is just a standard answer, but it worked out for me this time...
    Hope this helps in some ways.

  • Performance problem with Mavericks.

    Performance problem with Mavericks. My Mac is extremly slow after upgrading to Mavericks. What can i do to solve that?

    If you are still experiencing slow down issues, it maybe because of a few other reasons.
    Our experience with OS X upgrades, and Mavericks is no exception, is that users have installed a combination of third party software and/or hardware that is incompatible and/or is outdated that causes many negative performance issues when upgrading to a new OS X version.
    Your Mac's hard drive maybe getting full.
    Do you run any antivirus software on your Mac? Commercial Antivirus software can slow down and negatively impact the normal operation of OS X.
    Do you have apps like MacKeeper or any other maintenance apps like CleanMyMac 1 or 2, TuneUpMyMac or anything like these apps, installed on your Mac? These types of apps, while they appear to be helpful, can do too good a job of data "cleanup" causing the potential to do serious data corruption or data deletion and render a perfectly running OS completely dead and useless leaving you with a frozen, non-functional Mac.
    Your Mac may have way too many applications launching at startup/login.
    Your Mac may have old, non-updated or incompatible software installed.
    Your Mac could have incompatible or outdated web browser extensions, plugins or add-ons.
    Your Mac could have connected third party hardware that needs updated device drivers.
    It would help us to help you if we could have some more technical info about your iMac.
    If you so choose, please download, install and run Etrecheck.
    Etrecheck was developed as a simple Mac diagnostic report tool by a regular Apple Support forum user and technical support contributor named Etresoft. Etrecheck is a small, unobstrusive app that compiles a static snapshot of your entire Mac hardware system and installed software.
    This is a free app that has been honestly created to provided help in diagnosing issues with Macs running the new OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
    It is not malware and can be safely downloaded and installed onto your Mac.
    Copy/paste and post its report here in another reply thread so that we have a complete profile of your Mac's hardware and installed software so we can all help continue with your Mac performance issues.

  • Performance problem with ojdbc14.jar

    We are having performance problem with ojdbc14.jar in selecting and updating (batch updates) entries in a table. The queries are taking minutes to execute. The same java code works fine with ans queries taking sub seconds to execute.
    We have Oracle Database Server and I have downloaded the ojdbc14.jar from Oracle site for the same. Tried executing the java code from windows 2000, Sun Solaris and Opteron machines and having the same problem.
    Does any one know a solution to this problem? I also tried ojdbc14.jar meant for Oracle 10g, that did not help.
    Please help.

    My code is doing some thing which might be working well with and which does not work well with ojdbc14.jar? Any general suggestions to make the code better, especially for batch updates.
    But for selecting a row from the table, I am using index columns in the where cluase. In the code using PreparedStatement, setting all the reuired fields. Here is the code. We have a huge index with 14 fields!!. All the parameters are for where clause.
    if(longCallPStmt == null) {

  • Problem with the new server UCS C220 for set IP to CIMC

    We’ve a problem with the new server UCS C220.
    We bought two servers UCS C220 M3 for CallManager 8.6 with High Availability.
    When we turn on the server during the boot and when it tells us, oppress F8 to enter at the CIMC and set the IP. But it never enters at the CIMC.
    Then, we configure our DHCP server and our switch, we connect the three gigabyte ports to our switch to give him an IP to the CIMC, so and then can enter via browser, but neither works.
    Note. The dedicated management NIC does not link, the other two ports do make link.
    What do you suggest to put an IP to CIMC and start installing our applications?

    You may have noticed that there is no DVD rom on the c220. What you need to do is:
    Login into the CIMC from your browser
    Luanch the KVM
    Insert the VMware DVD in your machines drive
    On the KVM pop up there should be a tab to mount the drive, after mounting it click on Macros and choose ctrl_alt+delete to restart.
    After the VMware OS installs press F2 to enter IP.
    Browse to the VMware ip to download the Vsphere client
    Open the Vsphere client, enter the ip of the vmware and the username will be root and no password if you did not set one.
    You can now upload OVA templates or manually create virtua machine from this enviroment.
    Hope this help

  • Performance problems with SAP GUI 7.10 and BEx 3.5 Patch 400?

    Hi everybody,
    we installed SAP GUI 7.10 and BEx 3.5 Patch 400 and detected hugh performance problems with this version in comparison to the SAP GUI 6.40 and BEx 3.5 or BEx 7.0 Patch 800.
    Does anybody detect the same problems?
    Best regards,

    Most important question when you are talking about performance-issues:
    which OC are you working on and which excel version?

  • Is Anyone Having Problems with the newer version of Firefox?

    I still have my older Mac OsXv10.4 Tiger software. I wasn't exactly happy with Safari browser as it would block many sites and were considered incompatible so I downloaded the free Firefox browser (the 2.0 version) of which I STILL have. I'm aware that there is a much newer version and would like to download that, but I've heard a lot of people saying they have been having severe problems with it, but then they have PCs and not Macs.
    So my question is for you Mac users that use Firefox, have you had major problems with the newer version? I'm real hesitant to download if I'm going to have the same problem PC users are constantly crashing. Also would my old Tiger software be compatible? I don't want to upgrade to Leopard.

    Yes. I had problems with Firefox 3.5. The primary problem was very slow or never-ending loading of certain websites (particularly secure sites and sites with many features). I also have had similar, but not as bad, problems with Safari 4. I never had these problems with Safari 2 or Firefox 2. It just seems that with each update, the problems increased for me. I have read the Safari and Firefox forums and tried many fixes with little improvement. I have come to the conclusion that there is some kind of compatibility problem between the latest versions of Safari and Firefox and Shockwave Flash and/or Javascript and OS 10.4, particularly on PPC Macs. I expect there are many who will disagree and I cannot argue or prove the point. This is just my opinion. And I recognize that my problems could be caused by my setup and not by the browsers. By the way, I do not use any add-ons with any of my browsers. Anyway, I got tired of dealing with it and installed the latest version of Camino about 2 weeks ago. I also did a clean install of Firefox 3.0.13. Camino is working out great for me. It is simple and it works. No problems at all. So currently I am using Camino as my primary browser and Firefox 3.0.13 as my backup. I hope this helps.

  • Performance problem with Orcacle / Crystal reports 8.5 / ASP

    I have a performance problem with reports running crystal reports 8.5 with oracle databases.
    Fetching data appears to be slow. Oracle trace reports (tkprof) shows that fetchsize=1.
    Fetchsize in Oracle ODBC is 15 (default).
    How can I update te fetchsize in crystal reports?
    I would appreciate any help.

    CR XI R2 is also still available for purchase. This is the last version of CR to use the RDC. Contact sales at 866-681-3435.
    Make sure the installed versin is - if it is not, apply SP6:

  • Performance problem with Oracle

    We are currently getting a system developed in Unix/Weblogic/Tomcat/Oracle environment. We have developed a screen that contains 5 or 6 different parameters to select from. We could select multiple parameters in each of these selections. The idea behind the subsequent screens is to attach information to already existing data/ possible future data that matches the selection criteria.
    Based on these selections, existing data located within the system in a table is searched and those that match are selected. Also new rows are created in the table against combinations that do not currently have a match. Frequently multiple parameters are selected, and 2000 different combinations need to be searched in the table. Of these selections, only about 100 or 200 combinations will be available in existing data. So the system is having to insert 1800 rows. The user meanwhile waits for the system to come up with data based on their selections. The user is not willing to wait more than 30 seconds to get to the next screen. In the above mentioned scenario, the system takes more than an hour to insert the new records and bring the information up. We need suggestions to see if the performance can be improved this drastically. If not what are the alternatives? Thanks

    The #1 cause for performance problems with Oracle is not using it correctly.
    I find it hard to believe that with the small data volumes mentioned, that you can have perfornance problems.
    You need to perform a sanity check. Are you using Oracle correctly? Do you know what bind variables are? Are you using indexes correctly? Are you using PL/SQL correctly? Is the instance setup correctly? What about storage, are you using SAME (RAID10) or something else? Etc.
    Facts. Oracle peforms exceptionally well. Oracle exceptionally well.
    Simple example from a benchmark I did on this exact same subject. App-tier developers not understanding and not using Oracle correctly. Incorrect usage of Oracle doing a 100,000 SQL statements. 24+ minutes elapsed time. Doing those exact same 100,000 SQL statement correctly (using bind variables) - 8 seconds elapsed time. (benchmark using Oracle on a Sunfire V20z server)
    But then you need to use Oracle correctly. Are you familiar with the Oracle Concepts Guide? Have you read the Oracle Application Developer Fundamentals Guide?

  • Performance problem with CR SDK

    I'am currently on a customer site and I have the following problem :
    The client have a performance problem with a J2EE application wich call a Crystal report with th CR SDK. To reproduce the problem on the local machine (the CR server), I have developped a little jsp page wich used the Crystal SDK to open a Crystal report on the server (this report is based on a XML data source), setting the new data source (with a new xml data flow) and refresh the report in PDF format.
    The problem is that the 2 first sequences take about 5 seconde each (5 sec for the opening report and 5 seconds for the setting data source). Then the total process take about 15 seconds to open and refresh the document that is very long for a little document.
    The document is a 600Ko file, the xml source is a 80Ko file.
    My jsp page is directly deployed on the tomcat of the Crystal Report Server (CRXIR2 without Service Pack).
    The Filestore and the MySQL database are on the CR server.
    The server is a 4 quadripro (16 proc) with 16Go of RAM and is totally dedicated to Crystal Report. For the moment, there is no activity on the server (it is also used for the test).
    The mains jsp orders are the followings :
    IEnterpriseSession es = CrystalEnterprise.getSessionMgr().logon("administrator", "", "EDITBI:6400", "secEnterprise");
        IInfoStore infoStore = (IInfoStore) es.getService("", "InfoStore");
        IInfoObjects infoObjects = infoStore.query("SELECT * FROM CI_INFOOBJECTS WHERE SI_NAME='CPA_EV' AND SI_INSTANCE=0 ");
        IInfoObject report = (IInfoObject) infoObjects.get(0);
    IReportAppFactory reportAppFactory = (IReportAppFactory)es.getService("RASReportFactory");
    ReportClientDocument reportClientDoc = reportAppFactory.openDocument(report.getID(), 0, null);
    IXMLDataSet xmlDataSet = new XMLDataSet();
    xmlDataSet.setXMLData(new ByteArray(ligne_data_xml));
    xmlDataSet.setXMLSchema(new ByteArray(ligne_schema_xml));
    DatabaseController db = reportClientDoc.getDatabaseController();
    db.setDataSource(xmlDataSet, "", "");
    ByteArrayInputStream bt = (ByteArrayInputStream)reportClientDoc.getPrintOutputController().export(ReportExportFormat.PDF);
    My question is : does this method is the good one to do this ?
    Thank's in advance for your help
    Best regards
