Summary of DBMS_AW Subprograms

The following table describes the subprograms provided in DBMS_AW.

Table B-1 DBMS_AW Subprograms

Subprogram Description

ADD_DIMENSION_SOURCE Procedure

Populates a table type named DBMS_AW$_DIMENSION_SOURCES_T with information provided in its parameters about the dimensions of the cube.

ADVISE_CUBE Procedure

Suggests how to preaggregate a cube, based on a specified percentage of the cube's data.

ADVISE_DIMENSIONALITY Function

Returns a recommended composite definition for the cube and a recommended dimension order.

ADVISE_DIMENSIONALITY Procedure

Generates the OLAP DML commands for defining the recommended composite and measures in a cube.

ADVISE_PARTITIONING_DIMENSION Function

Identifies the dimension that the Sparsity Advisor partitioned over.

ADVISE_PARTITIONING_LEVEL Function

Returns the level used by the Sparsity Advisor for partitioning over a dimension.

ADVISE_REL Procedure

Suggests how to preaggregate a dimension, based on a specified percentage of the dimension's members.

ADVISE_SPARSITY Procedure

Analyzes a fact table for sparsity and populates a table with the results of its analysis.

AW_ATTACH Procedure

Attaches an analytic workspace to a session.

AW_COPY Procedure

Creates a new analytic workspace and populates it with the object definitions and data from another analytic workspace.

AW_CREATE Procedure

Creates a new, empty analytic workspace.

AW_DELETE Procedure

Deletes an analytic workspace

AW_DETACH Procedure

Detaches an analytic workspace from a session.

AW_RENAME Procedure

Changes the name of an analytic workspace.

AW_TABLESPACE Function

Returns the name of the tablespace in which a particular analytic workspace is stored.

AW_UPDATE Procedure

Saves changes made to an analytic workspace.

CONVERT Procedure

Converts an analytic workspace from 9i to 10g storage format.

EVAL_NUMBER Function

Returns the result of a numeric expression in an analytic workspace.

EVAL_TEXT Function

Returns the result of a text expression in an analytic workspace.

EXECUTE Procedure

Executes one or more OLAP DML commands. Input and output is limited to 4K. Typically used in an interactive session using an analytic workspace.

GETLOG Function

Returns the session log from the last execution of the INTERP or INTERPCLOB functions.

INFILE Procedure

Executes the OLAP DML commands specified in a file.

INTERP Function

Executes one or more OLAP DML commands. Input is limited to 4K and output to 4G. Typically used in applications when the 4K limit on output for the EXECUTE procedure is too restrictive.

INTERPCLOB Function

Executes one or more OLAP DML commands. Input and output are limited to 4G. Typically used in applications when the 4K input limit of the INTERP function is too restrictive.

INTERP_SILENT Procedure

Executes one or more OLAP DML commands and suppresses the output. Input is limited to 4K and output to 4G.

OLAP_ON Function

Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the OLAP option is installed in the database.

OLAP_RUNNING Function

Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the OLAP option has been initialized in the current session.

PRINTLOG Procedure

Prints a session log returned by the INTERP, INTERCLOB, or GETLOG functions.

RUN Procedure

Executes one or more OLAP DML commands.

SHUTDOWN Procedure

Shuts down the current OLAP session.

SPARSITY_ADVICE_TABLE Procedure

Creates a table which the ADVISE_SPARSITY procedure uses to store the results of its analysis.

STARTUP Procedure

Starts an OLAP session without attaching a user-defined analytic workspace.
