Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 [Release 11.1 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This note is to explain why the blocks on disk are not released from the OS after the ADRCI purges the trace files.
For instance, you issue the following command within the ARDRI utility:
ardci> purge -age 0 -type trace
You then execute the 'df' or 'bdf' command and cannot see an increase in blocks in the available column.
