Fore creation or rebuild, try querying v$session_longops to get an indication of progress or amount of work left. Also, for creation of index, if you query dba_segments based on tablespace you will find a weird named segment (with numbers). That's the "TEMP" segment as the index is being built, once index creation finishes, the weird segment will now have the actual name of index. The size from the dba_segments is indicative of how much of it is built (assuming you have a fair idea of final size). Received on Tue Oct 06 2009 - 22:55:57 CDT
