In-Memory Dynamic Scans (IMDS) is a new feature in Oracle Database 18c that allows parallelizing In-Memory table scans without having to use Parallel Query. IMDS is able to parallelize In-Memory table scans using lightweight threads. The feature is used in conjunction with the Resource Manager. This is required because Resource Manager is what determines how many threads will be used based on CPU count and the current load on the system. One of the big advantages of IMDS is that communication between the threads only occurs within the invoking process so there is no external contention.

When talking about In-Memory Expressions and Join Groups I usually refer to them as the high-performance features of Database In-Memory. IMDS has…
