What’s new in Oracle9i that is of interest to a DBA?
Automatic undo management
What is automatic undo?
Oracle manages undo space using the undo tablespace instead of rollback segmentsOracle manages the size and number of undo segmentsRelieves DBA from creating and monitoring rollback segments New type of tablespace required – UNDO TABLESPACE New initialization parametersUNDO_MANAGEMENT - Decides the type of undo management.AUTO specifies automatic undo managementMANUAL specifies pre-9i behavior where the DBA manages rollback segments.This is the defaultUNDO_TABLESPACE – Name of the undo tablespace, this is a dynamic parameter,so you can change the name of the undo tablespace. You may have multiple undotablespaces on the database, only one can be active at any given time. If you do notspecify this parameter, oracle uses the first available undo tablespace.UNDO_RETENTION - specifies (in seconds) the amount of committed undoinformation to retain in the database. The default is 900 seconds. Keep this valuehigh to avoid “Snapshot too old” errors. This is also a dynamic parameter, which can be changed using ALTER SYSTEM.UNDO_SUPPRESS_ERRORS - Suppress errors while executing manual undomanagement mode operations. If your application has SET TRANSACTION USEROLLBACK SEGMENT statement, setting this parameter value to TRUE willsuppress the error while in automatic undo.
How to create an undo tablespace?
Specify while creating the 9i database:
DATAFILE '/oradata/MYDB/undotbs01.dbf' SIZE 100M
Create using the CREATE TABLESPACE syntax:
DATAFILE '/oradata/MYDB/undotbs01.dbf' SIZE 100M
You can specify only DATAFILE and EXTENT MANAGEMENT LOCAL clauseswhen creating the UNDO TABLESPACE.
