Calling the dbms_stats package to analyze a table benefits the cost-based optimizer, which Oracle recommends you routinely analyze. It will help speed up the analysis if you just analyze 1% of tables. Also, I've found that using dbms_stats.gather_table_stats can give better statistics than Oracle's recommended dbms_stats.gather_schema_stats.
CREATE OR REPLACE procedure analyze_table2 as ojn varchar2(100); user_name varchar2(20); dml_str VARCHAR2(200); CURSOR c1 IS SELECT table_name FROM user_tables WHERE temporary <> 'Y'; BEGIN select user into user_name from dual; open c1; loop fetch c1 into ojn; dbms_output.put_line ('Now '|| ojn ||' is analyzing '); exit when c1%NOTFOUND; dml_str := 'begin dbms_stats.gather_table_stats( '||''''||user_name||'''' ||','|| ''''||ojn ||'''' || ',null,1) ;end;'; dbms_output.put_line (dml_str); execute immediate dml_str; END LOOP; END; /
