Hi all,

When I am trying to execute the below query, it is very slow(1 to 2 mins), but that not happens everytime, like once in 5 or 6 times.

             MQ_DPC_BOES MDB
         AND MDB.BILL_NO = '303-00006116-13'
         AND REC_TYPE      = 'I'
   AND NVL (MDP.DEL_IND, 'N') = 'N'

table MQ_DPC_PKGS is from remote DB. Help me to find out reason / solution.

Check the query/plan from the remote database.

Also try monitoring network usage when it is slow.

Your query specifies one particular BILL_NO on the local table but not on the remote table. The optimizer may be translating that to a table scan on the remote.  I suggest either:
1) switch the BILL_NO to the remote table: MDP.BILL_NO = '303-00006116-13' (instead of MDB.BILL_NO =)
2) move the query processing to the remote server with the 'driving_site' hint, see the Oracle documentation here:
