    Materialized View Estimation


    What is the best way of estimating the size for a MV before it's creation

    I have to create an MV of a table located on remote database
    which will be an exact replica of the master table (all columns)
    with a fast refresh.

    I have tried using the dbms_olap.est_mview_size pkg
    but it does not give me any value

    Thnx in advance

    With it being an exact replica the only variables are the storage (pctfree / pctused / block size etc) so i don't see how this is difficult at all

    Did you said your MV will be an "exact replica" of the master table?

    You can be sure your MV is not going to be larger than your base table, probably smaller. How smaller? ... it depends of how much wasted space you have in your base table 'cause of fragmentation.
