Hi Forum

On Oracle 9207 on solaris, I want to determine the size of a table. The table is present in dba_objects , but I dont see any value in bytes column of dba_segments table. The table has 566 rows of data.

Any idea !!

Forgive me, but you are doing something WRONG!


SQL> select count(*) from user_segments where segment_type = 'TABLE' and bytes is null;

  COUNT(*)
----------
         0


use sqlplus along with CUT & PASTE the whole session which supports your initial problem report.

It returns 0. Anyhow it will just list the tables with null in bytes column. I need to determine the size.

I also tried checking number of blocks in table and multiplying by db_block_size, but there is null also in blocks field of dba_tables.

Is it an externally organised table (EOT)?

This is normal in multiple cases: no gathered statistics, partition table, iot...

Post your query on DBA_SEGMENTS, actual size is in DBA_SEGMENTS as size is a physical property, dba_objects and dba_tables show you logical or structural properties.

Edit: As Ana said, you can't have null bytes in dba_segments. Null bytes would mean there is a null/non-existent/ghost segment.

Michel
