### How to gather statistics in DBMS _ STATS-Oracle?

GATHER_TABLE_STATS Procedure The GATHER_* procedures also collect user-defined statistics for columns and domain indexes. The statown, stattab, and statid parameters instruct the package to back up current statistics in the specified table before gathering new statistics.
