it means that the process took 21 milliseconds to complete, with 0 (rounded) ms where on CPU.
means that almost "all the time" the process had to wait for the CPU ...

when the cpu = 0  deos it mean that the query was not recompiled.

If yes.... did it take 21ms to establish no recompile is needed?

Mr Shaw

dont forget that a soft Parse does take time eaven if the query wasent recompiled.

and yes if cpu is 0 then the query was probably not recompiled, eaven thow it is possible that the value was lower and rounded down.
