Space announcement


This space provides the same content as before, but the organization of the home page has changed. The content is now organized based on logical branches instead of legacy book titles. We hope that the new structure will help you quickly find the content that you need.

SQL tab

The SQL tab opens when you select a statement in the Performance perspective, or when you create a tuning session for an ad hoc SQL statement.

If you select a statement from a package or from the statement cache, the statement is displayed in the SQL tab.


If you want to edit a statement selected from the statement cache or from a package, you must create a What-If scenario.

If you are creating an ad hoc tuning session, you must enter the statement into this pane. You must also populate the other fields. For more information, see Analyzing an ad hoc statement.


After the statement has been explained, in the Classic console click What-If (in the New console, click ) to modify the statement, or enter new parameters to run a subsequent Explain.
