Re: so ok one of the users blew out temp during production flows last night

Gotta love that old Panic and Point dance...Why not just increase the temp space to 42 terabytes and kick all users out of the database? <knee jerk sarcasm>

I presume that the session who consumed the temp space was unrelated to the process. What was the session doing? If there was a statement consuming too much temp space, then tuning/rewriting is in order. It would be an opportunity to explain to someone about resource issues within a database. If the statement has been running fine and there are not any indications of changes, you might be encountering an issue where temp space is not being freed properly and/or overconsumed. I've dealt with this issue in several databases and never received a satisfactory answer from Oracle support.
