Former Member

Dear support,

I would like to know is there any way to plot database growth in oracle , as my cutomer needs reason why there is database growth of 2 GB in first week of month and why it was 0.5 GB in next week . Off course we can find how much Database growth happened by history option. but could we find out in which tables growth happened over last few weeks and why ?

One way is to maintain tables information over every week and then monitor growth in particular tables in next week , but i am talking about already passed weeks ( history ) . can we find those by history for last 2 weeks.As we didnt maintain any table level info.

Best Regards,

Easy enough to do with the free tools that are out there. I use orastat ( to get the database size, then threw some perl code together using GD:graph and present the result to our users/managers.

read on orastats's website:

What is 'orastat' ?

'orastat' is a FREE oracle CLI (Command Line Interface) unix based tool which I have written over the last couple of years. ' orastat' was written in Korn Shell (ksh) and used mainly on a Solaris box, although this does not limit the database on which it is monitoring (I have monitored oracle on AIX, HP-UX and Windows from a Solaris box).

That information is available in DB02.

Not only database/tablespace, but also tables

Hi Ajju,

We have format to maintain database growth, tablespace and database activities. End of the month we use to create chart which can gives rate of the growth.

I suggest this may help to record and analyze the database activities.

Reward points if helpful.
