OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE

Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE = { 8.0.0 | 8.0.3 | 8.0.4 | 8.0.5 | 8.0.6 | 8.0.7 | 8.1.0 | 8.1.3 | 8.1.4 | 8.1.5 | 8.1.6 | 8.1.7 | 9.0.0 | 9.0.1 | 9.2.0 | 9.2.0.8 | 10.1.0 | 10.1.0.3 | 10.1.0.4 | 10.1.0.5 | 10.2.0.1 | 10.2.0.2 | 10.2.0.3 | 10.2.0.4 | 10.2.0.5 | 11.1.0.6 | 11.1.0.7 | 11.2.0.1 }
Default value 11.2.0.1
Modifiable ALTER SESSION, ALTER SYSTEM

OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE acts as an umbrella parameter for enabling a series of optimizer features based on an Oracle release number.

For example, if you upgrade your database from release 10.1 to release 11.1, but you want to keep the release 10.1 optimizer behavior, you can do so by setting this parameter to 10.1.0. At a later time, you can try the enhancements introduced in releases up to and including release 11.1 by setting the parameter to 11.1.0.6.

Table 1-3 describes some of the optimizer features that are enabled when you set the OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE parameter to a 9.0 release or a 9.2 release.

Table 1-4 describes some of the optimizer features that are enabled when you set the OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE parameter to a 10.1 release or a 10.2 release.

Table 1-5 describes some of the optimizer features that are enabled when you set the OPTIMIZER_FEATURES_ENABLE parameter to a 11.1 release.
