Locked Gather Stats Jobs


I am trying to select all non-system tables with locked status in the gather statistics job. This is oracle 11g database.

select table_name, OBJECT_TYPE, stattype_locked from user_tab_statistics where table_name != '%sys%'

no rows selected

Thanks for your help with the above query.

RE: Locked Gather Stats Jobs

You can't select "all non-system tables" by querying user_tab_statistics. User_tab_statistics contains information about tables in your own schema only. That's no doubt why your query is returning no rows. If you really want to find stattype_lock for all non-system tables, you will have to query dba_tab_statistics instead. Also, your where clause "where table_name != '%sys%'" is not the right way to eliminate system tables. Instead you should try a query similar to the following:


select owner, table_name, object_type, stattype_locked from dba_tab_statistics
  where owner <> 'SYS'; 

You might also want to limit your query to only those tables with non null values of stattype_locked. Otherwise your query will probably return many thousands of rows.
