How to improve deletes on a non partitioned table with no indexes

Dear oracle gurus,

I have created a non partitioned table with no indexes and stuffed in
about 15 million rows. Using oracle 8.1.7.4 standard. I then deleted 1
million and it took 1 solid hour. How can i reduce the time for
deletes? Since oracle default locking behavior is row level locking, i
changed to lock the table in exclusive mode before deleting. This dint
help..

Any clues,
avsrk

One way to improve your performance would be to avoid the delete. Create a
new table as select from the original table, excluding the rows you want to
eliminate. Then, drop the original table and rename the new one to the
original name.

I am using SQL Server 2000, SP3. I created an updatable partitioned view awhile ago and it has been running smoothly for some time. The partition is on a DATETIME column and it is partitioned by month. Each month a stored procedure is scheduled that creates the new month's table, and alters the view to include it. Again... working like a charm for quite some time. This past weekend I moved some of the first tables onto a new file...

Hi, I am using SQL 2000 and has a table that contains more than 2 million rows of data (and growing). Right now, I have encountered 2 problems: 1) Sometimes, when I try to query against this table, I would get sql command time out. Hence, I did more testing with Query Analyser and to find out that the same queries would not always take about the same time to be executed. Could anyone please tell me what would affect the speed of the...

The following SP removes records from table A if they exist in table B. Table A - TEST.TABLE_X has 30 million records Table B - TEST.TABLE_X_DELTA has 5 million records. Appx 4 million records shoud be deleted in Table A. However my query moves the cursor one record at a time. So this is extremely slow. The reason I have to use a SP is bec I need to avoid fulling the log space. Thus I need to commit frequently.

Hello all! I created a range-partitioned table, and noticed that indexes were created as "NOT PARTITIONED" (through db2look), even though I ran the index creating commands without this parameter. Not that I care too much now about it :-) But what will happen when once upon a time in the future I execute the "attach partition" command, and so add another partition to the existing (partitioned) table. Will the indexes then be automatically...

Indexes cause inserts/load to slow down. Is there anyway to drop indexes on one partition of a partioned table? From what I read this is not possible. I know Oracle has the option to disable local indexes. Is there anything similar in db2??

Hi All, Is it possible to create a partitioned index on a table which is not partitioned? If so what is such a partition called and please explain? I have done some research on partitions and index partitions and this is where I hit the wall the 2nd time. As per my study there are 3 types of indexed partitions: Global index (which is on an entire partitioned table) then there is Local Index (on just the partition of the table) and then there...
