    ask for a help with statspack's snapshot deletion

    Hi DBAs,

    I need to schedule a cronjob to delete all snapshots which are older than
    some specified days, for example, 30 days.

    i modified the oracle's sppurge.sql and got my version sppurge.sql, which
    deletes the snapshots which are older the {$1} days.

    My shell script's logic is like this:
    enter the sqlplus:
    do a query:like : select count(*) from stats$snapshot where
    snap_time < sysdate - $1;

    if the count(*) >0 then call my modified sppurge.sql to delete all the old
    snapshots.

    the problem is---
    how can I return the count(*) from sqlplus back to shell script,
    if it is greater than 0, then my shell script continues to call my modified sppurge.sql.

    Thanks,

    Lily

    Thank you very much, Milind.

    This is what I exactly want. Of course, the solution is much better than
    my original one.

    Thank you again.
