Is it possible to make a query to run in a parellel mode just by setting the int.ora parameters.
with out giving hints in the sql query?

The scenario is 'We dont have the access to the source code of the product. But we want to make the query to run in a parellel mode' I am using oracle 8.1.7

Any help on this will be appreciated...

Please read the Oracle Parallel Query FAQ at http://www.orafaq.net/faqopq.htm:

Parallel Queries can be performed against tables by doing one of the following:

1. Alter the table (or index) to indicate that Oracle should try to parallelise operations performed against it:


2. Put hints in SQL statements to indicate that Oracle should try to execute them in parallel:

SQL> SELECT --+ PARALLEL(table_alias, degree, nodes) * FROM table ...

Best regards.

To execute a query in parallel it is also nessesary that the data is organised in a parallel fashion, i.e. in a partitioned table and/or index.

With the init.ora parameter parallel_min_percent you can force the optimizer to favor parallel execution over standard rule based execution. But still the optimizer might decide that the query cannot be executed parallelly.
