Script for move partition stats of previous to next month automatic in Oracle

Script for move stats of previous to next month partition in Oracle

In one of our customer is facing problems on first of every month due to no data present on new partition that why its stats calculated in zero rows. To fixed this issue we copy the previous month stats to the next month stats manually so that it work properly on 1st of month.

Following script will calculate the stats of previous month then move to future month so stats remain same for SQL queries and run fast as it run for previous month.

Script Workaround
1. Script work with monthly partition name like SALE201901, SALE201902, SALES201903 .. So on
2. You need to specify the initial parameter such as partition prefix, schema name and table name.
3. It calculate the stats of previous month partition and move to upcoming partition.
4. Scheduled in CRON or Window Scheduler of last SATURDAY.
Suppose March month is going and my partition name is SALES201903, it will calculate FEB month(SALES201902) stats again and copy to APRIL Month(SALES201904) for performance fixed.
