This is the second part of the video tutorial "Analysing Parallel Execution Skew". In this part I introduce the concept of "Data Flow Operations (DFOs)" and "DFO Trees", which is what a Parallel Execution plan is made of. DFOs / DFO Trees are specific to Parallel Execution and don't have any counterpart in a serial execution plan.
Understanding the implications of DFOs / DFO Trees is important as prerequisite for understanding some of the effects shown in the later parts of the video tutorial, hence I covered this as a separate topic.
Note that this tutorial also demonstrates some new 12c features regarding Parallel Execution, in particular how Oracle 12c now lifts many of the previous limitations that lead to the generation of multiple DFO Trees.
Here is the video:
