DROP OUTLINE

Purpose

Note:

Oracle strongly recommends that you use SQL plan management for new applications. SQL plan management creates SQL plan baselines, which offer superior SQL performance stability compared with stored outlines.

You can migrate existing stored outlines to SQL plan baselines by using the MIGRATE_STORED_OUTLINE function of the DBMS_SPM package or Enterprise Manager DB Control. When the migration is complete, the stored outlines are marked as migrated and can be removed. You can drop all migrated stored outlines on your system by using the DROP_MIGRATED_STORED_OUTLINE function of the DBMS_SPM package.

See Also: Oracle Database Performance Tuning Guide for more information about SQL plan management and Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for information about the DBMS_SPM package

Use the DROP OUTLINE statement to drop a stored outline.

Prerequisites

To drop an outline, you must have the DROP ANY OUTLINE system privilege.

Syntax

Description of the illustration drop_outline.gif

Semantics

outline

Specify the name of the outline to be dropped.

After the outline is dropped, if the SQL statement for which the stored outline was created is compiled, then the optimizer generates a new execution plan without the influence of the outline.

Example

Dropping an Outline: Example The following statement drops the stored outline called salaries.

DROP OUTLINE salaries;
