Oracle PRAGMA COVERAGE
Version 12.2.0.1

General Information
Library Note Morgan's Library Page Header
For how many years have you been working with physical servers that are starving your database of the memory necessary to deploy important new performance features such as the Result Cache, Memoptimize Pool, In-Memory Aggregation, In-Memory Column Store, and Full Database Caching? Too long? Contact me to learn how to improve all queries ... not just some queries.
Purpose The COVERAGE pragma marks PL/SQL code which is infeasible to test for coverage. These marks improve coverage metric accuracy. The COVERAGE pragma marks PL/SQL source code to indicate that the code may not be feasibly tested for coverage. The pragma marks a specific code section. Marking infeasible code improves the quality of coverage metrics used to assess how much testing has been achieved.
