    Angry SMON question

    Hi DBAs,

    I have a query about SMON. In Oracle 7 Every five minutes SMON looks
    through the free extent table (sys.fet$) to see if there are any
    adjacent free extents that can be coalesced into a single extent,
    and on every 25th cycle SMON looks at the segment table (sys.seg$)
    to see if there are any temporary segments that need to be eliminated.

    My questions are :
    1/ DO SMON still looks through the free extent table every 5 minutes
    or has it changed on 8i/9i?
    2/ Do SMON looks at the segment table (sys.seg$) every 125 minutes
    or has it changed on 8i/9i?

    TIA
    Giani
