Here’s an extract from a report of activity in an Oracle session that I’ve just been running. Spot the anomaly: Name Value —- —– session cursor cache hits 3 parse count (total) 5 parse count (hard) 31 execute count 35 There are no tricks involved with this output, though the database activity is a little unusual, and I haven’t faked any numbers. So how come I’ve got more “hard parses” than “parses” ?
