change multifile-TS to bigfile-TS
is it possible to change a multifile-TS (20 files a 2 GB) to a single-file TS ('bigfile') WITHOUT EXPORT/IMPORT in Oracle10 or Oracle9?
alter table move tablespace xxxx and then rebuild the indexes
Hi, is there any advantage/disadvantage between the two TS types?
smaller multifile TS seem handy and manageable to copy/backup
do you even understand what a bigfile tablespace is?

so you dont understand then
Bigfile tablespaces reduce sga usage by an average 475 bytes per file.
With Bigfile tablespaces manageability becomes easier...No need to extend any datafiles to increase space...just add disk
But bigfile tablespaces should be used only in conjuction with a logical volume manager because of io load balancing issues
There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks...
Unix is user friendly. It's just very particular about who it's friends are.
Good point Simply_DBA. Jenny is right a file 1T in size, it's scary. So, you use it only with LVM or storage array or ASM, where you do not have a control of where your files are anyway
...all roads lead to ASM anyway
