V$SQL_MONITOR

V$SQL_MONITOR displays SQL statements whose execution have been (or are being) monitored by Oracle. An entry is created in V$SQL_MONITOR every time the execution of a SQL statement is being monitored. SQL monitoring is automatically started when a SQL statement runs parallel or when it has consumed at least 5 seconds of CPU or I/O time.

When the SQL statement being monitored is executing, statistics in V$SQL_MONITOR are generally refreshed in near real time, once every second. Once the execution ends, monitoring information is not deleted immediately. Instead, it is kept in V$SQL_MONITOR for at least one minute. The entry will eventually be deleted to reclaim its space as new statements are monitored.

Column Datatype Description
KEY NUMBER Artificial join key to efficiently join V$SQL_MONITOR with its corresponding plan level monitoring statistics stored in V$SQL_PLAN_MONITOR
STATUS VARCHAR2(19) SQL execution status:
  • EXECUTING - SQL statement is still executing

  • DONE (ERROR) - Execution terminated with an error

  • DONE (FIRST N ROWS) - Execution terminated by the application before all rows were fetched

  • DONE (ALL ROWS) - Execution terminated and all rows were fetched

  • DONE - Execution terminated (parallel execution)

FIRST_REFRESH_TIME DATE Time when monitoring of the SQL statement started, generally a few seconds after execution start time
LAST_REFRESH_TIME DATE Time when statistics in V$SQL_MONITOR were last updated for the SQL statement. Statistics are generally refreshed every second when the statement executes.
REFRESH_COUNT NUMBER Number of times V$SQL_MONITOR statistics have been refreshed (generally once every second when the SQL statement executes)
SID NUMBER Session identifier executing (or having executed) the SQL statement being monitored
PROCESS_NAME VARCHAR2(5) Process name identifier executing (or having executed)the statement; ora if the process is foreground, else the background process name (for example, p001 for PX server p001)
SQL_ID VARCHAR2(13) SQL identifier of the statement being monitored
SQL_EXEC_START DATE Time when the execution started
SQL_EXEC_ID NUMBER Execution identifier. Together, the three columns SQL_ID, SQL_EXEC_START, and SQL_EXEC_ID represent the execution key. The execution key is used to uniquely identify one execution of the SQL statement.
SQL_PLAN_HASH_VALUE NUMBER SQL Plan hash value
SQL_CHILD_ADDRESS RAW(4 | 8) Address of the child cursor (can be used with SQL_ID to join with V$SQL)
SESSION_SERIAL# NUMBER Session serial number executing the statement being monitored
PX_SERVER# NUMBER Logical parallel execution server process number executing (or having executed) the statement being monitored; NULL if this monitoring entry is not associated with an execution server. This is a logical number within the parallel server set (see SERVER# in V$PX_SESSION).
PX_SERVER_GROUP NUMBER Logical parallel execution server group number to which PX_SERVER# belongs (see SERVER_GROUP in V$PX_SESSION); NULL if this monitoring entry is not associated with a parallel execution server. This value is generally 1 unless the SQL statement has one or more parallel sub-queries.
PX_SERVER_SET NUMBER Number (1 or 2) of the logical set of parallel execution servers to which PX_SERVER# belongs (see SERVER_SET in V$PX_SESSION); NULL if this monitoring entry is not associated with a parallel execution server
PX_QCINST_ID NUMBER Instance identifier where the parallel execution coordinator runs; NULL if PX_SERVER# is NULL
PX_QCSID NUMBER Session identifier for the parallel execution coordinator; NULL if PX_SERVER# is NULL
ELAPSED_TIME NUMBER Elapsed time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
CPU_TIME NUMBER CPU time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
FETCHES NUMBER Number of fetches associated with the SQL statement; updated as the statement executes
BUFFER_GETS NUMBER Number of buffer get operations; updated as the statement executes
DISK_READS NUMBER Number of disk reads; updated as the statement executes
DIRECT_WRITES NUMBER Number of direct writes; updated as the statement executes
APPLICATION_WAIT_TIME NUMBER Application wait time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
CONCURRENCY_WAIT_TIME NUMBER Concurrency wait time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
CLUSTER_WAIT_TIME NUMBER Cluster wait time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
USER_IO_WAIT_TIME NUMBER User I/O Wait Time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
PLSQL_EXEC_TIME NUMBER PL/SQL execution time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
JAVA_EXEC_TIME NUMBER Java execution time (in microseconds); updated as the statement executes
