is there a possible way to find if select query fired is doing a table scan or an index scan?
I have a table with xactlt 3 lac and 14 rows.....
and a select query takes ages to to retrive result....
though 5 cols have been indexed...
any suggestions welcome
Just a reminder
and is there a way to see the plan..as toike which objects oracle seeks during the search
something like a table plan?
Look for some documentation on the EXPLAIN PLAN utility. A full explanation is too long for a post.
This utility will help identify full table scans.
One other point: it is possible to overindex.
