    You can see the control file size easily by looking at the operating sytem.

    To know the location of the control files by issuing command: select * from v$controlfile or control_files parameter in the initialization paramter file.

    Hope this helps.


    Thanks

    I thought the same ... till now

    Yep, I stand corrected.

    The formula in the above script realy works for 8i. It gives an incorrect result for 9i though- perhaps the formula needs minor corrections to be used 9i. I think Steve Adams would be the right address to come up with a formula that works with 9i too.

    Alternatively, check the length of the file using Java:

    Cheers

    PS. Not sure if this will attempt to lock the file and crash your instance
