Information in this document applies to any platform.
- Due to SYSAUX tablespace growth, the P_PERMANENT partition was dropped since it was felt that it was likely that the last DDL on this partition would be very old and therefore a good candidate for removal.
- Becasue P_PERMANENT partition has been dropped, the system generated interval partition on the tables WRI$_OPTSTAT_HISTGRM_HISTORY and WRI$_OPTSTAT_HISTHEAD_HISTORY is converted to a range partition. eg:
- The purge job failing will results in SYSAUX growing to a huge size and a large list of partitions for the two tables (WRI$_OPTSTAT_HISTGRM_HISTORY and WRI$_OPTSTAT_HISTHEAD_HISTORY) because partitions are not purged as they are supposed to be
Manually dropped P_PERMANENT partition from SYSAUX tablespace to reduce its size.
