    This is a job for oradebug -one of the many Oracle unsong super heroes.

    Please try this...

    0- Initiate offending process.

    1- Figure out the SPID of the offending process.

    2- Log into the system as sysdba

    3- Start oradebug...
    oradebug setospid SPID-from_step_1;

    4- Enable 10046...
    oradebug event 10046 trace name context forever, level 12

    5- Wait... wait... keep waiting... then wait a little more

    6- Disable 10046 tracing...
    oradebug event 10046 trace name context off

    7- tkprof trace file and bingo! you got your 10046 trace on remote session.

    Thanks Paul.

    Unfortunately, client has not given the complete DBA privileges on this DB So I can not use oradebug. Even for the trace file I am generating, I need to ask client employee to send me the file, then I am doing tkprof in my laptop.

    well, we can not customize DML queries in Informatica. We can customize the queries reading from source but not the queries writing. At the most I can do is take the risk of putting table in nologging.

    I am very much pity on myself.

    Paul, can you help me to understand the v$segment_statistics better?

    select OBJECT_NAME,SUBOBJECT_NAME,object_type,statistic_name,statistic#,value from v$segment_statistics where obj# in (
    select object_id from dba_objects where object_name='A_IDX') order by object_type,value desc;
    OBJECT_NAME                    SUBOBJECT_ OBJECT_TYPE        STATISTIC_NAME                 STATISTIC#          VALUE
    ------------------------------ ---------- ------------------ ------------------------------ ---------- --------------
    A_IDX             INDEX              space allocated                        15     3757047808
    A_IDX             INDEX              space used                             14     2555428919
    A_IDX             INDEX              logical reads                           0      352393280
    A_IDX             INDEX              db block changes                        3      119409200
    High value means DB is spending that much time to allocate space?

    Also, I would like to update that the 12 hours INSERT job for which I started this thread is completed in two and half hours today after dropping all the Indexes associated. But still I am not happy because it has just inserted 600K rows. I am working with ETL guys to find the ETL side waits.

    Try hard to get what you like OR you will be forced to like what you get.

    What are the chances of rewritting this Informatica mapping as a PL/SQL block? - just for testing purposes

    I would write the code without using explicit cursors a.k.a. set-based and, I'll eventually use APPEND hint during insert. On the first try I'll commit only once at the end of the job.
    So is Oracle waiting another approximate 20% for Informatica to push some work??
