There are some methods that can be applied as a solution. You can ensure that the query runs successfully by applying any of these methods.
- Before you run the query, you can set PARALLEL_FORCE_LOCAL to session based TRUE and run the query.
12 SQL> alter session set PARALLEL_FORCE_LOCAL = TRUE ;SQL>-- execute the problematic query
- Ensure that DML queries do not run in parallel before the query.
12 SQL> ALTER SESSION DISABLE PARALLEL DML;SQL>-- execute the problematic query
- Save the DDL command of the table to which the DELETE operation is to be performed. Then delete all indexes. After you perform the DELETE operation, create the indexes again.
