Okay, I need to know if there exists a best practices document that I
can't find anywhere yet.


I need to find a way to justify (or change my way of thinking).


I have a data warehouse

I have heavily partitioned data (partition by month) with each partition
in its own tablespace



I can make old data read only and speed up backups

I can maintain at the tablespace level

I can compres at the tablespace level


I have "way too many" tablespaces (this has been suggested more than
once and has been posed as a problem with my thinking and my judgement)
and there is supposed to be some document somewhere that says no
database needs more than 50 tablespaces (odd though about that
E-business suite thing for years).


Does anyone have any pointers to good partitioning best practices
document so I can re-educate myself or something.
