LOB, sql_id and LCO

with 3 comments

Kerry Osborne wrote an interesting case on LOB here.

His post gave me a curiosity, so I made a simple test case to emulate his case with some interesting informations.

1. Make LOB data

create table t1(c1 clob);

insert into t1 values(rpad('x',4000,'x'));

commit;

declare
  dest_lob    clob;
  src_lob     clob;
begin
  select c1 into dest_lob
  from t1
  where rownum = 1
  for update;
  
  for idx in 1 .. 100 loop
    dbms_lob.append(dest_lob, rpad('x',4000,'x'));
  end loop;
end;
/

commit;


2. Read LOB data

select * from t1;


3. While reading LOB data, query v$session in another session. As Kerry pointed out, the PREV_SQL_ID value is sql id of select query. But we have no SQL of sql id ‘3aug5b01n1pgg’

UKJA@ukja102> exec print_table('select sql_id, prev_sql_id from v$session where sid=159');
SQL_ID                        : 3aug5b01n1pgg
PREV_SQL_ID                   : 27uhu2q2xuu7r
-----------------

UKJA@ukja102> select sql_text from v$sql where sql_id = '3aug5b01n1pgg';

no rows selected

UKJA@ukja102> select sql_text from v$sql where sql_id = '27uhu2q2xuu7r';

SQL_TEXT
------------------------------------------------------------------------
select * from t1


4. So, where is the object whose sql id is ‘3aug5b01n1pgg’? Here it goes.

UKJA@ukja102> exec print_table('select * from sys.xm$kglob where kglobt03 = ''3aug5b01n1pgg''');

x$kglob.kglobt03 is sql id and the object is table_4_9_1473d_0_0_. Here we have 2 LCOs – one is parent and the other is child.

Also note that the namespace(kglhdnsp) is 0(CURSOR). This means that this LCO is not actually LOB itself, but the internal query on LOB.

5. Library cache dump shows another interesting stuff.

Yes, we can even find out which table is being related using the ugly library cache dump. But we still have no direct way to identify the existence of LOB. :(

This was a very interesting case and thank you Kerry for sharing valueable info!

  1. Besides, table name can be extracted from the hidden object name – table_4_9_1473d_0_0_

    select * from dba_objects where object_id = to_dec('1473d');

  2. […] Dion Cho responded to that with his item on LOB, sql_id and LCO. […]
