Parallel Execution -- 3b Limiting PX Servers with Resource Manager

As demonstrated earlier, in the absence of CALIBRATE_IO, the "automatic" degree computed by a PARALLEL Hint is CPU_COUNT x PARALLEL_THREADS_PER_CPU

HEMANT>select degree from user_tables where table_name = 'LARGE_TABLE';

DEGREE
----------------------------------------
         4

HEMANT>select /*+ PARALLEL */ count(*) from Large_Table;

  COUNT(*)
----------
   4802944

HEMANT>select executions, px_servers_executions, sql_fulltext
  2  from v$sqlstats
  3  where sql_id = '8b0ybuspqu0mm';

EXECUTIONS PX_SERVERS_EXECUTIONS SQL_FULLTEXT
---------- --------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         1                    16 select /*+ PARALLEL */ count(*) from Large_Table

HEMANT>

Now, I shall explore using the Resource Manager to place a limit.

HEMANT>connect system/oracle
Connected.

  DBMS_RESOURCE_MANAGER.CREATE_PENDING_AREA();

System altered.

I have now created 1 single consumer group and a plan.
Note 1 :  The COMMENT is mandatory for the Consumer Group, the Plan and the Directives.
Note 2 : It is mandatory to specify Directives for OTHER_GROUPS in the Plan (even if I don't explicitly define any other groups).
For the Group 'PX_QUERY_USER', I've set a PX Limit of 4 (and no CPU limit).  For the 'OTHER_GROUPS', I've set a CPU Limit of 10%
I must now associate the Consumer Group with the User.

Let me test the configuration now.

SYSTEM>connect hemant/hemant
Connected.
HEMANT>select username, resource_consumer_group
  2  from v$session
  3  where username='HEMANT'
  4  /

USERNAME                       RESOURCE_CONSUMER_GROUP
------------------------------ --------------------------------
HEMANT                         PX_QUERY_USER

HEMANT>
HEMANT>select /*+ PARALLEL */ count(*) from Large_Table;

  COUNT(*)
----------
   4802944

HEMANT>select executions, px_servers_executions, sql_fulltext
  2  from v$sqlstats
  3  where sql_id = '8b0ybuspqu0mm';

EXECUTIONS PX_SERVERS_EXECUTIONS SQL_FULLTEXT
---------- --------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         1                     4 select /*+ PARALLEL */ count(*) from Large_Table

HEMANT>

Now, the same query executed with only 4 PX servers.
