Has anyone verified the performance of DBMS_PARALLEL_EXECUTE package in plsql 11.2?

    Hello ,

    It is a very nice and effective concept DBMS_PARALLEL_EXECUTE from pl/sql 11.2 release .

    I have gone through the concept and executed . I succeeded in that .

    You can go through the concept http://rghegdedisc.blogspot.in/2015/01/execute-parallel-task-using.html

    I tried to verify the performance of this with some other concept like simple update, bulk update.
    But I dint get huge data to prove the performance .

    Has anyone verified this? Could you please send me the screen shot ...

    Thanks in advance

    Understand that when parallelizing jobs in Oracle, two things have to be true in order for the result to be faster than the same task.

    1. The task being executed must be large. Serial execution time should be at least several seconds long. The larger the job, the more potential benefit that executing in parallel can provide. There is overhead involved in parallel execution that can cause it to take longer than serial execution for small tasks.
    2. The server hardware must have sufficient memory and CPU resources available that parallelizing the job does not cause resource bottlenecks. As with #1, executing a job in parallel on a system with insufficient resources can cause a task to run slower than it would have serially.

    I suspect that at least #1 and possibly #2 is not true for the tests you have run. In a test environment one of the more difficult tasks is creating a sample data set that is 'large' by Oracle standards and this is pretty much required for the type of benchmark you are asking for.
