Simplified database capacity optimization.

Enables you to reorganize Oracle data, optimize I/O performance and maximize database capacity.



Space Manager with LiveReorg™ enables you to reorganize Oracle data, optimize I/O performance, and maximize database capacity. You can prevent application and database downtime by performing online Oracle reorganizations to reclaim space. The Oracle partitioning tool also allows you to resolve performance issues due to fragmentation when archiving Oracle data. You’ll find this especially useful for business-critical ERP applications, such as Oracle e-Business Suite, Siebel and SAP, where high-transaction volumes require you to routinely archive data.
Oracle reorganization and space reclamation
  • Reorganizes data to reclaim your wasted space and optimize your database capacity and performance on archived tables, eliminating the need to buy additional disk space.
  • Prevents your organization from experiencing application and database downtime by performing online reorganizations.
  • Determines indexes and tables to reorganize data. Enables you to perform proactive analysis and planning by reclaiming maximum space and tracking historical reorganization activity.
  • Supports multiple datatypes and objects for standard and live reorgs, including individual partitions, domain indexes, user-defined datatypes, and tables with both LOB datatypes and LONG columns.
  • Automatically resumes script execution from point of failure or clean up of residual objects by providing restart and clean-up capabilities for failed reorganization scripts.
Database capacity optimization
  • Using simple charts, easily view existing space usage and future growth in databases that use the same storage resources.
  • Estimate your organization’s future storage needs based on detailed trend charts showing historical growth rates, as well as hypothetical “what if” scenarios.
  • Quickly determine where to utilize space more efficiently with alerts on emerging issues, such as limited free space or space reclamation opportunities
Oracle partitioning
  • Use a built-in partitioning wizard to minimize downtime by partitioning objects live, while users and applications remain online.
  • Partition, repartition, and remove/add/modify partitions to identify best fit for data access to data.
  • Confirm that you have sufficient space available to ensure reorg success with multiple automatic space-check audits.

    80 MB for statistics tables
    20 MB for scripts tables
    20 MB contiguous free space for LiveReorg objects in the LiveReorg tablespace (set with QSA’s LW_TABLESPACE parameter)
    40 MB in the filesystem for QSA executables and logs

    Oracle Packages
    Space Manager:
    Find Long LONGs feature: UTL_RAW
    Email notifications: UTL_SMTP

    Oracle's Partitioning Option
    Required for the Online Switch (a feature available for live reorganizations) and the Partitioning Wizard; Partitioning Option must be installed and licensed.

    XDB Schema
    Required for XMLType datatypes.

    Requirements for the Capacity Manager Repository

    The database used for the Capacity Manager repository must meet the following requirements:

    Oracle Database 
    Supported for the repository:
    Oracle 9.2
    Oracle 10.2
    Oracle 11g
    Oracle 11g R2

    Disk Space
    8 MB recommended per monitored database assigned to a repository (accommodates one year of growth in repository objects)

    Job Scheduler
    One of the following schedules is needed for snapshot jobs, report scheduling, and Windows scheduling:
    Oracle DBMS_JOBs is used for scheduling snapshot jobs on Oracle8i and Oracle9i.
    Oracle DBMS_SCHEDULER is used for scheduling snapshot jobs on Oracle10g.
    A third-party job scheduler can be used instead of an Oracle DBMS package.

    Oracle Initialization Parameters
    Oracle initialization parameters should be set as follows:
    OPEN_LINKS—The value for OPEN_LINKS initialization parameter should be equal to or greater than the number of monitored databases assigned to a repository. The default value for this parameter is 4; the maximum is 255.
    JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES—The value for the JOB_QUEUE_PROCESSES initialization parameter should be greater than zero in Oracle 9.2 databases. For optimal performance of snapshot jobs, it should be equal to or greater than the number of monitored databases assigned to a repository. The maximum is 1,000.
