V$SQLTEXT in Oracle

V$SQLTEXT is very important view for Oracle DBA that contains the text of SQL statements belonging to shared SQL cursors in the SGA.

Columns of v$sqltext are as follows.
SQL> desc v$sqltext;
Name Null?         Type
----------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------
ADDRESS           RAW(8)
HASH_VALUE        NUMBER
SQL_ID            VARCHAR2(13)
COMMAND_TYPE      NUMBER
PIECE             NUMBER
SQL_TEXT          VARCHAR2(64)
CON_ID            NUMBER

GV$SQLTEXT Columns

ColumnDatatypeDescription
ADDRESSRAW(4 | 8)Used with HASH_VALUE to uniquely identify a cached cursor
HASH_VALUENUMBERUsed with ADDRESS to uniquely identify a cached cursor
SQL_IDVARCHAR2(13)SQL identifier of a cached cursor
COMMAND_TYPENUMBERCode for the type of SQL statement (SELECTINSERT, and so on)
PIECENUMBERNumber used to order the pieces of SQL text
SQL_TEXTVARCHAR2(64)A column containing one piece of the SQL text

 

You can find the sqltext from sql_id as follows.

SQL> select * from gv$sqltext where sql_id='86tvxatxqc003';

INST_ID ADDRESS HASH_VALUE SQL_ID COMMAND_TYPE PIECE SQL_TEXT CON_ID
---------- ---------------- ---------- ------------- ------------ ---------- ---------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
1 00000001450380A0 2070282243 86tvxatxqc003 3 14 STEM_KODU"=8) AND ("A"."IS_YADA_ABONE_NO"=144494)) innerQuery 0
1 00000001450380A0 2070282243 86tvxatxqc003 3 13 7295 AS C2, COUNT(*) AS C3 FROM "ORT_BAKIYE" "A" WHERE ("A"."SI 0

 

 

You can use the v$sqltext with v$session as follows.

select a.sid, a.serial#, a.username, a.osuser, b.sql_text,b.sql_id
from v$session a, v$sqltext b
where a.sql_hash_value = b.hash_value
and a.sql_address = b.address
and a.sid in (select sid
from v$session_wait
where event = 'db file sequential read')
order by a.sid, b.hash_value, b.piece;

 

 

V$SQLSTATS in Oracle

V$SQLSTATS is very import for Oracle DBA that displays basic performance statistics for SQL cursors and contains one row per SQL statement (that is, one row per unique value of SQL_ID).

The column definitions for columns in V$SQLSTATS are identical to those in the V$SQL and V$SQLAREA views. However, the V$SQLSTATS view differs from V$SQL and V$SQLAREA in that it is faster, more scalable, and has a greater data retention (the statistics may still appear in this view, even after the cursor has been aged out of the shared pool).

Note that V$SQLSTATS contains a subset of columns that appear in V$SQL and V$SQLAREA.

You can use the v$sqlstats to find out SQL Statements that are doing high I/O.

SELECT sql_text, disk_reads FROM
(SELECT sql_text, buffer_gets, disk_reads, sorts,
cpu_time/1000000 cpu, rows_processed, elapsed_time
FROM v$sqlstats
ORDER BY disk_reads DESC)
WHERE rownum <= 5;




SELECT schema, sql_text, disk_reads, round(cpu,2) FROM
(SELECT s.parsing_schema_name schema, t.sql_id, t.sql_text, t.disk_reads,
t.sorts, t.cpu_time/1000000 cpu, t.rows_processed, t.elapsed_time
FROM v$sqlstats t join v$sql s on(t.sql_id = s.sql_id)
WHERE parsing_schema_name = 'HR'
ORDER BY disk_reads DESC)
WHERE rownum <= 5;
