101 DBMS_MEMOPTIMIZE

The DBMS_MEMOPTIMIZE package provides the interface for managing the Memoptimized Rowstore data buffered in the large pool and the memoptimize pool.

This chapter contains the following topics:

101.1 DBMS_MEMOPTIMIZE Overview

The DBMS_MEMOPTIMIZE package provides the interface for managing Memoptimized Rowstore data buffered in the large pool and the memoptimize pool.

The Memoptimized Rowstore provides the following functionality:

  • Fast Ingest

    Fast ingest optimizes the processing of high-frequency, single-row data inserts. Fast ingest uses the large pool in the SGA for buffering the inserts before writing them to disk.

  • Fast Lookup

    Fast lookup enables fast retrieval of data for high-frequency queries. Fast lookup uses a separate memory area in the SGA called the memoptimize pool for buffering data queried from tables.

The DBMS_MEMOPTIMIZE package provides the following operations related to the Memoptimized Rowstore:

  • Fast ingest operations:

    • Provide the low high-water mark (low HWM) of the sequence numbers of rows that have been successfully written from the large pool to disk across all the sessions.

    • Provide the high-water mark (HWM) sequence number of the row that has been written to the large pool for the current session.

    • Flush all the fast ingest data from the large pool to disk for the current session.

  • Fast lookup operations:

    • Remove data for a table from the memoptimize pool.

    • Populate data for a table in the memoptimize pool.
