Hi All,

I have been tuning the tables using the ANALYZE command , without knowing what happens internally . Iam new to Oracle DBA in tuning. Hence request anyone to provide a detailed explanation as to what happens when we ANALYZE the table or use DBMS_GATHER_STATISTICS package.

Thanks in advance.
