Its 'a little bit of undo' that seems to be my problem From the asktom site:
Inserting 500 rows,
3,297,752 bytes of redo generated for "insert into perm "...
66,488 bytes of redo generated for "insert into temp
So if you have a stored procedure that inserts 1000 rows when called
and is called 1000 times a minute
thats 132M a minute (66,488/500*1000*1000), 191G a day. Bearing in mind this is temporary table I am
selecting from, I will never want to keep it.
How long should these logs persist from, what are common practices? Received on Mon Sep 07 2009 - 14:56:24 CDT
