Round Robin and Parallel Forced to Serial

So we have a parallel process, coordinator 739 running, just not very well… I have an ugly pink section in my OEM grid and as we know, pink is not a DBA Girl’s favorite color… 🙂

 Not so fast… the process, due to the wait on temp and then to buffer, has decided to “force” it to serial?

 …. but it doesn’t even show up in the downgraded info, which may surprise you at first, including the parallel waits, which still shows parallel, not serial…

Both of the processes experiencing this type of downgrade are showing the same preformance issue,

 no downgrade reported in the system, but it IS SHOWING in the explain plan and the performance of active sessions/memory workarea that it has downgraded to a serial process…

 So what’s up?

The load as select in the last step of the CTAS is not parallelized-  no parallel dml has been enabled or parallel hinted in the beginning of the statement, so the statement has downgraded to serial to complete the final step. 

OK, now I know it’s time to look into ensuring the development group is enabling parallel DML next to spread across the temp tablespace groups more efficiently…
