Oracle will report corruption when it finds it.
You can scan database files using the "dbv" utility.

I agree.
What problem are you trying to solve?
How would an independent observer realize that your problem has been solved?

Have a look a the status column in the all_objects view. I guess that's what you are after.

I guess that would just state us the status of the object ...i.e (VALID, INVALID, or N/A)

Please let me know if you are aware of any thing else on this

thanks

Maybe you can first tell us what exactly you mean by the word "Corrupted", and what you mean by "Object".

And what the actual reason is for the question.

Yeah Sure.

Need to setup a script on a unix box for the corrupted objects in the database, Hence the query.

That just answers "what", now "why", and the other two questions are also still unanswered. What sort of corruption do you mean, and what sort of objects?

You could detect block level datafile corruptions by doing a full export ( to /dev/null perhaps).

>now "why
The Pointy Haired Boss want to be "proactive";
but given that the corruption has already occurred this is like the search for the Golden Fleece.

"Ah, yes. The "Can you write a script that will mail us all the errors that will occur the following week on Monday morning?" approach. Very Happy

Hi,

The STATUS column for DBA/ALL/USER_OBJECTS won't show you when a table or index is corrupted, just the status for the object (i.e. when you move a table to another tablespace, indexes for that table become INVALID because the keys have rowids that point to blocks in another tablespace).

Second, if you have parameters DB_BLOCK_CHECKING and DB_BLOCK_CHECKSUM set to TRUE, the DB already is doing the checking.

If you want to kill two birds with one shot: use RMAN for backups, it will do the block checking stuff AND you will get all the nice features RMAN can provide for backup and recovery.
V$DATABASE_BLOCK_CORRUPTION view will show you the full list.
Smile

Regards
Ignacio
