Current status of the workload replay:

  • PREPARE - Workload prepare has been started and is waiting for clients to join

  • IN PROGRESS - Workload replay is in progress

  • COMPLETED - Workload replay has successfully completed

  • CANCELLED - Workload replay or the workload prepare has been cancelled

  • FAILED - Workload replay was aborted due to errors encountered. See the COMMENTS column for further information.

PREPARE_TIME

DATE

Datetime at which the workload prepare started

START_TIME

DATE

Datetime when the replay began

END_TIME

DATE

Datetime when the replay completed or cancelled; NULL if the replay is still in progress

SYNCHRONIZATION

VARCHAR2(9)

Indicates whether recorded transaction semantics should be maintained (TRUE) or not (FALSE)

When synchronization is on, the commit order observed during the original workload capture will be preserved. Every action that is replayed will be executed only after all of its dependent commits have been executed. Dependent commits are commits that were issued before the given action in the original workload capture.

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.PREPARE_REPLAY() in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for a detailed explanation of this replay parameter

CONNECT_TIME_SCALE

NUMBER

NOT NULL

Connection time scaling factor for captured streams during replay. The value is interpreted as a percentage.The default value of 100 means 100 percent.

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.PREPARE_REPLAY() in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for a detailed explanation of this replay parameter

THINK_TIME_SCALE

NUMBER

NOT NULL

Think time scaling factor for captured streams during replay. It scales the thinking time elapsed between two successive user calls from the same captured stream. The input is interpreted as a percentage. The default value of 100 means 100 percent.

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.PREPARE_REPLAY() in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for a detailed explanation of this replay parameter

THINK_TIME_AUTO_CORRECT

VARCHAR2(5)

Indicates whether the think time should be automatically corrected between calls (TRUE) or not (FALSE)

A value of TRUE reduces think time if replay goes slower than capture.

A value of FALSE results in no action.

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.PREPARE_REPLAY() in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference for a detailed explanation of this replay parameter

SCALE_UP_MULTIPLIER

NUMBER

NOT NULL

Before the multiple-capture replay, SCALE_UP_MULTIPLIER is used to scale up the query part of a workload capture. The queries from each captured session are replayed concurrently as many times as the value of SCALE_UP_MULTIPLIER.

USER_CALLS

Total number of user calls replayed

DBTIME

NUMBER

Accumulated database time (in microseconds) for the replay

NETWORK_TIME

NUMBER

Accumulated network time for the replay (in microseconds)

THINK_TIME

NUMBER

Accumulated think time (in microseconds) for the replay

PAUSE_TIME

NUMBER

The total time (in seconds) that the replay has been paused (by calling the PAUSE_REPLAY procedure)

PLSQL_CALLSFoot 1

NUMBER

Total number of replayed top-level PL/SQL calls

PLSQL_SUBCALLSFootref 1

NUMBER

Total number of replayed calls for SQL executed from PL/SQL

PLSQL_DBTIMEFootref 1

NUMBER

Total amount of database time (in microseconds) from PL/SQL calls

ELAPSED_TIME_DIFF

NUMBER

Reserved for future use

AWR_DBID

NUMBER

Database ID of the AWR snapshots that correspond to this workload replay. For replays that were performed in the current database, this value is equal to the current database's DBID. For replays that were performed in other databases, this value will either be NULL or will be populated by DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.IMPORT_AWR().

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.IMPORT_AWR() in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference

AWR_BEGIN_SNAP

NUMBER

Begin snapshot ID of the AWR snapshots that correspond to this workload replay

AWR_END_SNAP

NUMBER

End snapshot ID of the AWR snapshots that correspond to this workload replay

AWR_EXPORTED

VARCHAR2(12)

Indicates whether the AWR snapshots that correspond to this workload replay have been exported using DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.EXPORT_AWR() (YES) or not (NO), or whether AWR snapshots cannot be exported because the replay is still in progress, has run to completion successfully, or was done in a different database from which it was not exported (NOT POSSIBLE)

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY.EXPORT_AWR() in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference

ERROR_CODE

NUMBER

Error code for this workload replay

ERROR_MESSAGE

VARCHAR2(300)

Error message for this workload replay

DIR_PATH

VARCHAR2(4000)

NOT NULL

Full directory path for the replay directory object

REPLAY_DIR_NUMBER

NUMBER

A hash value computed based on the values of other columns in this view, such as the NAME, DBID, DBNAME, PREPARE_TIME, START_TIME, and END_TIME columns. It should be fairly unique for any replay. The value is used to create a subdirectory under the replay directory.

SQLSET_OWNER

VARCHAR2(128)

User name of the SQL tuning set owner

SQLSET_NAME

VARCHAR2(128)

Name of the SQL tuning set for this workload replay

SCHEDULE_NAME

VARCHAR2(128)

The name of a schedule to be replayed. It defines one or multiple workload captures, and the order to start their replays.

If SCHEDULE_NAME is NULL, the replay is a regular replay introduced since Oracle Database 11g, done with existing APIs from DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY: INITIALIZE_REPLAY, PREPARE_REPLAY, and START_REPLAY.

If SCHEDULE_NAME is not NULL, the replay is a new consolidated replay introduced in Oracle Database 12c. That is, it is a replay of one or more workload captures done with new APIs at DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY: INITIALIZE_CONSOLIDATED_REPLAY, PREPARE_CONSOLIDATED_REPLAY, and START_CONSOLIDATED_REPLAY.

See Also: DBMS_WORKLOAD_REPLAY in Oracle Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference

DIVERGENCE_LOAD_STATUS

VARCHAR2(5)

Indicates whether replay divergence data have been loaded (TRUE) or not (FALSE)

PLSQL_MODEFootref 1

VARCHAR2(23)

Replay options for PL/SQL calls. Possible values:

  • TOP_LEVEL: Top-level PL/SQL only

  • EXTENDED: SQL executed from PL/SQL or top-level PL/SQL if there is no SQL recorded inside the PL/SQL

CONNECT_TIME_AUTO_CORRECT

VARCHAR2(12)

Indicates whether the waiting time for a new session to be connected is automatically reduced when the replay proceeds faster than its capture. The reduced amount is determined by the elapsed-time difference between the replay and the capture of the slowest session. The default value is true.

There is no impact when the replay proceeds slower than the capture.

RAC_MODEFootref 1

VARCHAR2(19)

Replay options in an Oracle RAC environment:

  • GLOBAL_SYNC: Synchronization is across all instances. This is the default.

    Database connections from workload replay client (wrc) are done based on connection remapping.

  • PER_INSTANCE_CLIENT: Synchronization is across all instances.

    All database connections from one wrc are connected to only one instance.

  • PER_INSTANCE_SYNC: Synchronization is within one instance.

    All database connections from one wrc are connected to only one instance.

QUERY_ONLYFootref 1

VARCHAR2(1)

Indicates whether only the query-only workload from the current workload capture will be replayed, skipping all the DML/DDL that might update the database (Y) or not (N)
