I have a 2 node cluster. We have around 25GB of undo on both nodes. We always get SNAPSHOT too old. The first node undo tablespace always run out of sapce. Currently it is 35 GB.
Does select statements uses undo tablespace??

No.But if table is lock or some DMLs are going on UNDO tablespace then in that case select goes to undo tablespace to retrive consistent copy of the query .

Every Oracle Database must have a method of maintaining information that is used to roll back, or undo, changes to the database. Such information consists of records of the actions of transactions, primarily before they are committed. These records are collectively referred to as undo.

If we shutdown the instance and bring it back, the undo should be 0% use, still it is 100% use and that is 35GB.

Whats the UNDO_RETENTION value?

And did you create 2 UNDOS for 2 nodes.

whats your ORACLE version post 4 decimals.

Try to switch the tablespaces between the nodes and then try your NODE1.

You should ensure that both instances are using automatic UNDO management. If you want to shrink your UNDO tablespace, you can perform the following:
  • create a new UNDO tablespace
  • switch the database to use the new UNDO tablespace (ALTER SYSTEM SET UNDO_TABLESPACE = undotbs_02;)
  • drop the old UNDO tablespace
You can drop the UNDO tablespace as long as there aren't any active transaction using the UNDO tablespace.

recreate new undo tablespace is the best thing you can do
because with new undo tablespace your problem with undo size
has finish...but..
i think with recreate undo tablespace you can't do flashback if one time you want your old data
all old historical saved in undo tablespace unless you have backup system....

is all i'm say true?
sory i'm beginner with this Smile

If you have a question, create a new topic don't use an old one.
Flashback is not in the scope of the original question.
