Export and Import schema statistics

Posted by Gavin Soorma on June 25, 2009

Easy way to export and import schema statistics – in case the optimizer is behaving strangely and you want to re-import old statistics when the optimizer behaved properly.


Create the table to store the statistics-

Export schema stats – will be stored in the ‘STATS_TABLE’
EXEC DBMS_STATS.export_schema_stats(‘TEST’,’STATS_TABLE’,NULL,’TEST’);

If required import these statistics back to TEST schema.
EXEC DBMS_STATS.import_schema_stats(‘TEST’,’STATS_TABLE’,NULL,’TEST’);

Finally drop the table created to backup the schema stats
EXEC DBMS_STATS.drop_stat_table(‘TEST’,’STATS_TABLE’);
