    TEMP tablespace

    A question about temp tablespace. We are on 8.1.7.2.

    I ran the following query and it came back with TEMPORARY.

    select contents from dba_tablespaces where tablespace_name='TEMP2';
    Should this be temporary or permanent? Thanks.

    I thought temporary tablespace designated as such for users, should be permanent. How would the temporary segments be released after a sort completes?

    Yes they(default tablespace) should be permanent, but if you create them as temporary tablespace then what can be done. Assign a temporary tablespace as users temporary tablespace so that temporary segments are release after sort operation finishes.
