    Hi,
    I've just got to administer this Oracle 7.3.4 database. I found that the Max extent for most of the tables is huge, it's 2,147,483,645
    The question here is, would that affect the performance or would it have any affect on the database in anyway ?

    Thanx

    Basically, that number signifies that the segment has maxextents set to unlimited. In general, this is not a bad thing. See various threads on this forum detailing Fragmentation for more information...

    but is it a good practise to set it at 2,147,483,645?

    No, don't set it to the number. Set MAXEXTENTS UNLIMITED. In general, yes, it is good practice.
