There are various .trc and .trm but they are only occupying 100M space (du –a). Are there things other than files which Oracle is creating on these file systems. If yes, how can I find them.

That makes sense. I have some customers who use shell scripts to clean out the adump folder, but you can also use DBMS_AUDIT_MGMT, which is what I prefer since it can also clean the DB audit trail and is integrated with Oracle. Received on Fri May 17 2013 - 07:18:48 CEST
