I've found a simple insert that has:
2,512,102 Buffer Gets
36,479 Physical Reads
1 Parse call
This insert statement appears quite a few times in the AWR report, and for
the times I see it, the statistics are pretty close to what I've listed.
The insert just has a list of columns and a list of values. No subqueries.
There is a TO_DATE conversion on two columns.This is a real table, not a
Does anyone have any suggestions of why a simple insert could cause this
much database activity?
Thanks to Brandon for suggesting awrsqrpt.sql in response to another
question. That is a great tool.
