To fully understand how the SQL Tuning Advisor tool works, we need to lay some groundwork and explain a few terms. Firstly, the Oracle query optimizer operates in two different modes: normal and tuning. When a SQL statement executes, the optimizer operates in normal mode and quickly identifies a reasonable execution plan. In this mode, the optimizer spends only a fraction of a second to determine the optimal plan.
