BDE files a Base Label Request (BLR) for 11.2.0.2
For the Version the customer has requested
Automatically a Request For Inclusion (RFI) IE 11.2.0.4 is produced,
(IF 12.1 was also production it would do a 12.1 RFI as well, we don't
know where you will go next....
A Merge Label Request (MLR) may be required once the BLR is
produced.... ”opatch lsinventory –detail”
FINALLY, a Patch Set Exception (PSE) for Customer’s platform is
produced....

Composite Patching
– Prevention of requesting unnecessary BLR/MLR/PSE’s due to fact that
there is NO conflict at all towards the PSU in question
– The composite patch approach
introduced starting from 11.2.0.2.7 + 11.2.0.3.2
– Conflict checking towards composite patches
Attempting a more automated apporach
Make supports life easy opatch lsinventory –detail
18
Why are we introducing Composite
Patches?
Currently Cumulative patches have several deficiencies.
• Installing a new version of the patch requires a rollback of the currently
installed cumulative patch
• All overlay patches must be rolled back when a new version is installed
• Any overlay patches not included in the new cumulative patch must be
reapplied after they are recreated
• It’s expensive and time consuming to recreate all the patches
• Applying Cumulative patches is slow
19
When to use a base patch xx.x.0.x.0
• A PSU specific PSE (patch) should only be installed/made/
requested in case there is a conflict towards the PSU.
• In case of no PSU conflict at all the base version of the patch
should be installed/used (11.2.0.3.0/11.2.0.2.0/…).
• KEEP IT SIMPLE
20
What are Composite Patches?
• A packaging format used for Cumulative patches
• A model to distinguish each new layer of a Cumulative patch
• Replace only the parts of the patch that have changed and are not
currently installed on the system
• Rollback only the parts of the patch that were previously installed
• Reduce the need to roll back overlay patches
• Improve patch apply performance
21
Life gets complex
11.2.0.2.4
11.2.0.2.3
11.2.0.2.2
11.2.0.2.1
22
Complexity
PSE A not conflicting with any PSU# => so base version of PSE 11.2.0.3.0
MLR BC for which B conflicts with C and both not conflicting with any PSU# => so base version of MLR 11.2.0.3.0
PSE D conflicting with PSU#1 => so PSU 11.2.0.3.1 needed
PSE E conflicting with PSU#2 => so PSU 11.2.0.3.2 needed
MLR FG for which F conflicts with G and G conflicts with PSU#4 implying that a FG MLR is needed on top of PSU#4
(which requires a PSU#4 BLR of F and G) => so PSU 11.2.0.3.4 version needed
PSE H is an incorrect PSE, there is only a conflict with PSU 11.2.0.3.1 and no conflict with higher PSU’s, the correct
version to install/request/… for this patch is a PSU 11.2.0.3.1 version
23
Windows does it differently
But can be as complex

Terminal release of 10.2.0.5.x
Bug 8202632 - 10.2.0.5.0 See – Note 161818.1
• Fixes many of the 10.2.0.4 issues

Terminal release of 11.1.0.7.x
Strongly advise move to 11.2.0.3 ASAP
• Architecture changes in 11.2 make back ports tricky if not impossible
[SDO_ANYINTERACT fixes wont backport....]
A COMPLEX SDO_ANYINTERACT query performance

•sdo_anyinteract 43 secs at 11.1.0.7 to 0.7 of a second
•There are some important changes to Oracle Database Patch Sets
starting with 11.2.0.2 (refer to Note 1189783.1 for details)
•11.2.0.4 or 12.1 where will you go?

Optimizer!!! Constantly evolving…. Mass of
fixes each release.
• Issues 10.2.0.5 and beyond testing will show
• Slow Performance when using SDO_RELATE /
SDO_FILTER (Doc ID 1268383.1)
• Execution plans involving "bitmap conversion to rowids"
and "table access full".
• Cause Optimizer is not selecting the optimal plan.
This is being addressed in a future release
There is a workaround…
29
SDO_RELATE / SDO_FILTER (Doc ID
1268383.1) Workaround…
SQL> connect /as sysdba
SQL> alter session set current_schema=MDSYS;
SQL> DISASSOCIATE STATISTICS FROM INDEXTYPES
spatial_index FORCE;
SQL> DISASSOCIATE STATISTICS FROM PACKAGES sdo_3gl FORCE;
SQL> DISASSOCIATE STATISTICS FROM PACKAGES prvt_idx
FORCE;
Then be sure either flush the shared pool or bounce the database for the
effects to take place
30
Consider Rapid Application Testing
Difficult to test spatial systems….
•
•
•
•
•
•
Been around a while – mature enough to use….
“Record” production system as it runs…
Great for peak loads… etc.
Replay on test/upgraded system
Patch, change statistics/base lines
Replay again and again….
