DBSNMP long running query

I noticed a long running query in one of my databases this morning.

Its computing tablespace size. The average runtime is 272.03 sec, or 4.5 minutes. This isn’t right, its running in a few seconds in other databases.

I started looking at the query in OEM, and noticed almost all the execution time was being spent on a FTS of X$KTFBUE. 

A little googling turned up the following article:

Fixed Table x$ktfbue has not statistics

My issue appears to be the same, there are not statistics on teh X$KTFBUE table.

So gather stats on the table

With the new statistics the query finishes in a few seconds.
