I seem to be seeing incredibly slow (5-10 seconds) to run a query against USER_TAB_PARTITIONS (Oracle) intermittently. When I do an explain plan on :


One of the steps shows a Nested Loops/Merge Join (Option = CARTESIAN) operation against TABPART$. The TABPART$ system table shows it has been analyzed in the last day. Is there a known problem with 11.2 and USER_TAB_PARTITIONS?

By the way, I am running Oracle v11.2.0.1

  • If you've analyzed system tables manually, rather than using GATHER_DICTIONARY_STATS (which just analyzes a subset of tables that need it), you have messed up. – Philᵀᴹ Jul 27 '13 at 0:13
