Free 1z0-060 Sample Question 24
A new report process containing a complex query is written, with high impact on the database. You want to collect basic statistics about query, such as the level of parallelism, total database time, and the number of I/O requests.
For the database instance STATISTICS_LEVEL, the initialization parameter is set to TYPICAL and the CONTROL_MANAGEMENT_PACK_ACCESS parameter is set to DIAGNOSTIC+TUNING.
What should you do to accomplish this task?
A. Execute the query and view Active Session History (ASH) for information about the query.
B. Enable SQL trace for the query.
C. Create a database operation, execute the query, and use theDBMS_SQL_MONITOR. REPORT_SQL_MONITOR function to view the report.
D. Use the DBMS_APPLICATION_INFO.SET_SESSION_LONGOPS procedure to monitor query execution and view the information from the V$SESSION_LONGOPS view.
Correct Answer: C
The REPORT_SQL_MONITOR function is used to return a SQL monitoring report for a specific SQL statement.
Not A: Not interested in session statistics, only in statistics for the particular SQL query.
Not B: We are interested in statistics, not tracing.
Not D: SET_SESSION_LONGOPS Procedure
This procedure sets a row in the V$SESSION_LONGOPS view. This is a view that is used to indicate the on-going progress of a long running operation. Some
Oracle functions, such as parallel execution and Server Managed Recovery, use rows in this view to indicate the status of, for example, a database backup.
Applications may use the SET_SESSION_LONGOPS procedure to advertise information on the progress of application specific long running tasks so that the progress can be monitored by way of the V$SESSION_LONGOPS view.
