I have a question related to Oracle auto DOP and parallel DML concepts. I have a scenario, if I set the Auto DOP set to 1 on the table and if I run parallel DML statements on that table through parallel hint, will the query processing happens in parallel execution or since the Auto dop is set to 1 will it be a serial execution?
Can you please provide some insight on this topic.
Thanks for the help!
You can’t have “Auto DOP set to 1”. You can either have:
– have auto DOP, meaning Oracle will attempt to automatically determine optimal DOP
– set DOP to 1, for example with
ALTER TABLE PARALLEL 1
The second option disables parallel query, so yes, query will execute serially. Unless you override it with a hint or
ALTER SESSION FORCE PARALLEL QUERY.
