How I used DBMS Scheduler to collect system statistics for an Oracle 10g Database 10g Release 2 Introduction: There

was a need to collect system statistics on an Oracle 10g Database Release 2 ( The job was to suppose collect system statistics after intervals of time. Although the operating system was AIX but I decided to use DBMS Scheduler. The job was in a PLSQL Block and it would execute the dbms_stats.gather_system_stats procedure. Audience: Database Administrators Environment: Oracle Database: Oracle 10g Database Release Operating System: AIX 5.3 Solution: First I created a job named myjob1; it was created in DEV schema. It would execute after the interval of 10 minutes and would gather system level statistics. I also did not mention enabled argument. This argument has two values TRUE (enabled job) or FALSE (disabled job) after the job is created. FALSE is the default. Lastly I did not mention the start_time and end_time therefore the job would immediately executed after it was created. But ‘myjob1’ job would not execute after it was created since it would be disabled.
SQL> begin 2 dbms_scheduler.create_job ( 3 job_name => 'dev.myjob1', 4 job_type => 'PLSQL_BLOCK', 5 job_action => 'BEGIN DBMS_STATS.GATHER_SYSTEM_STATS(interval=>10); END;', 6 comments => 'Gather System Level Statistics'); 7 end; 8 /

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed. After the job had been created I viewed DBA_SCHEDULER_JOBS table to see that the myjob1 has been enlisted among other default database jobs.

SQL> SELECT JOB_NAME FROM DBA_SCHEDULER_JOBS . then I queried ADDITIONAL_INFO column of the same table which contains additional information that basically included ORA errors.FGR$AUTOPURGE_JOB PURGE_LOG RLM$SCHDNEGACTION RLM$EVTCLEANUP MYJOB1 7 rows selected. ADDITIONAL_INFO ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ORA-20000: ORA-20000: Unable to gather system statistics: insufficient privileges ORA-06512: at "SYS. line 15822 ORA-06512: at line 1 The job ‘myjob1’ could not be executed from DEV schema because of insufficient privileges.

SQL> select ADDITIONAL_INFO 2 from dba_SCHEDULER_JOB_RUN_DETAILS 3 where job_name='MYJOB1'. SQL> 2 3 4 begin dbms_scheduler. / Now I viewed DBA_SCHEDULER_JOB_RUN_DETAILS table to see whether the job had been successfully executed. .
