Sometimes customer need to check the undo tablespace usage history, by using crontab and Linux shell script, we can give customer flexible ability to check undo tablespace usage information, or other dictionary view information. I am giving an example to show the method. This has been tested in Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.5 and bash shell. If using other kind of OS or shell, the script might need to be changed accordingly.
