Don't have experience with that.

But, don't forget to configure memory subcaches for multiple block sizes
(along with specifying new block size for the tablespace).

Check "Oracle 9i New Features" by R.Freeman (p.13).

Does anybody have any experience with the multiple block sizes in the database? I'm about to reconfigure

my database to have a tablespace with blocksize 16k in addition to the existing 8k tablespaces. Tables

in this tablespace will be loaded weekly and read daily, frequently using full table scan (DW style reporting.

I'm planning to have bitmap indexes and the rest of the DW arsenal). Does anybody have any negative experiences

with that kind of stuff? It's on RH 7.3. Am I running into ora-7445 and ora-0600 type errors?
