Maintaining Consumer Groups, Plans, and Directives

This section provides instructions for maintaining consumer groups, resource plans, and resource plan directives for Oracle Database Resource Manager (the Resource Manager). You perform maintenance tasks using the DBMS_RESOURCE_MANAGER PL/SQL package. The following topics are covered:

See Also:

Updating a Consumer Group

You use the UPDATE_CONSUMER_GROUP procedure to update consumer group information. The pending area must be created first, and then submitted after the consumer group is updated. If you do not specify the arguments for the UPDATE_CONSUMER_GROUP procedure, they remain unchanged in the data dictionary.

Deleting a Consumer Group

The DELETE_CONSUMER_GROUP procedure deletes the specified consumer group. The pending area must be created first, and then submitted after the consumer group is deleted. Upon deletion of a consumer group, all users having the deleted group as their initial consumer group are assigned the DEFAULT_CONSUMER_GROUP as their initial consumer group. All currently running sessions belonging to a deleted consumer group are assigned to a new consumer group, based on the consumer group mapping rules. If no consumer group is found for a session through mapping, the session is switched to the DEFAULT_CONSUMER_GROUP.

You cannot delete a consumer group if it is referenced by a resource plan directive.

Updating a Plan

You use the UPDATE_PLAN procedure to update plan information. The pending area must be created first, and then submitted after the plan is updated. If you do not specify the arguments for the UPDATE_PLAN procedure, they remain unchanged in the data dictionary. The following PL/SQL block updates the COMMENT parameter.

BEGIN
DBMS_RESOURCE_MANAGER.UPDATE_PLAN(
   PLAN => 'DAYTIME',
   NEW_COMMENT => '50% more resources for OLTP applications');
END;

Deleting a Plan

The DELETE_PLAN procedure deletes the specified plan as well as all the plan directives associated with it. The pending area must be created first, and then submitted after the plan is deleted.

The following PL/SQL block deletes the great_bread plan and its directives.

BEGIN
DBMS_RESOURCE_MANAGER.DELETE_PLAN(PLAN => 'great_bread');
END;

The resource consumer groups referenced by the deleted directives are not deleted, but they are no longer associated with the great_bread plan.

The DELETE_PLAN_CASCADE procedure deletes the specified plan as well as all its descendants: plan directives and those subplans and resource consumer groups that are not marked by the database as mandatory. If DELETE_PLAN_CASCADE encounters an error, it rolls back, leaving the plan unchanged.

You cannot delete the currently active plan.

Updating a Resource Plan Directive

Use the UPDATE_PLAN_DIRECTIVE procedure to update plan directives. The pending area must be created first, and then submitted after the resource plan directive is updated. If you do not specify the arguments for the UPDATE_PLAN_DIRECTIVE procedure, they remain unchanged in the data dictionary.

Deleting a Resource Plan Directive

To delete a resource plan directive, use the DELETE_PLAN_DIRECTIVE procedure. The pending area must be created first, and then submitted after the resource plan directive is deleted.
