How can i find the query which is increasing my temp file size. i have given different temp to different schema users. Size of some tmep files is increasing with the passage of time due to heavy sorting and calculation. i want to know which one is actually creating problem so i can make that query efficient.
thanks

Try v$sort_usage.

Some time ago I did this
It seems that in Oracle 9i vers 2 temporary and sort segments is equivalent.

When you want to see something about temporary table sizes at runtime, you should look into v$sort_usage and v$sort_segment. I haven't been able to find a clear cut way to see how large at temporary table is at runtime, but you could do something like the following sql. At least it will show you how much space a specifik user is actually using in the temporary tablespaces, and with what sql_text.
When looking at temp segment please notice they are not freed in v$temp_extent_map and v$temp_space_header.
The columns for owner, bytes used etc doesn't even seem to be freed by smon when the instance is restarted or ....??

select  a.sql_text,
        b.username,
        b.tablespace,
        b.extents,
        b.blocks from v$sqlarea a, v$sort_usage b

insert into bbb values ('anders')
CRB                            TEMP                                     1
       128

In this example bbb is a global temporary table.

Hope this is of any help

Then there is probably no sorting going on at the moment of the query, I guess.
