Monitoring Stored Outlines

Outlines provide a method for forcing the cost-based optimizer to consistently use the same optimization for a specific SQL statement. The DBA needs to be aware of which outlines are currently stored in the database and whether it has been used. The views used to monitor the outlines are dba_outlines and dba_outline_hints. Note that to create an outline, the plan_table must be located in either a publicly available schema or in your own schema. In Oracle9i, the OEM tool has been extended to allow for outline editing.

There are also new DBMS packages provided for this purpose. The views relationship is shown in Figure 7.7. An example report using the dba_outlines and dba_outline_hints views is shown below, with example output from the script following.
