List history information for histograms associated with a table
This is a proof-of-concept script to list information on histogram changes over time for a given table. In particular, it reports:
- Changes to histogram bucket counts.
- When histograms were added and removed for each table column.
The main script is "h_hist.sql".
It requires a DBA account and you supply two parameters:
SQL> @h_hist table_name user_name [If the user_name is 'USER', the current username will be assumed]
For a worked example, see spool file example.lst and a test script example.sql
The subdirectory "partitioned" includes a script for partitioned tables. This is brand new and might need further debugging. Currently I have not implemented anything for a subpartitioned table.
WARNING: The example.sql script will drop a table called SALES. Always use test databases.
NOTE: The earliest release I've tested this is Oracle Database 12c Release 2 but Release 1 should be OK too
