Datafile utilization check

When you want to shrink a datafile, you must always check the single datafile utilization. In case if you shrink datafile more than the used size, it will fail. Below query gives the datafile utilization and depending upon the datafile free space, you can shrink it


Query to check free space in data file

col file_name for a60;
set pagesize 500;
set linesize 500;
SELECT SUBSTR (df.NAME, 1, 40) file_name, df.bytes / 1024 / 1024 allocated_mb,
((df.bytes / 1024 / 1024) - NVL (SUM (dfs.bytes) / 1024 / 1024, 0))
used_mb,
NVL (SUM (dfs.bytes) / 1024 / 1024, 0) free_space_mb
FROM v$datafile df, dba_free_space dfs
WHERE df.file# = dfs.file_id(+)
GROUP BY dfs.file_id, df.NAME, df.file#, df.bytes
ORDER BY file_name;


Query to find % free in each data file


This query gives usage of datafile, percentage free in the datafile. Query can be used to find datafiles which are not in use and can be resized looking into the free percentage.

SET PAGESIZE 60
SET LINESIZE 900
COLUMN "Tablespace Name" FORMAT A10
COLUMN "File Name" FORMAT A40
 
SELECT  Substr(df.tablespace_name,1,20) "Tablespace Name",
        Substr(df.file_name,1,80) "File Name",
        Round(df.bytes/1024/1024,0) "Size (M)",
        decode(e.used_bytes,NULL,0,Round(e.used_bytes/1024/1024,0)) "Used (M)",
        decode(f.free_bytes,NULL,0,Round(f.free_bytes/1024/1024,0)) "Free (M)",
        decode(e.used_bytes,NULL,0,Round((e.used_bytes/df.bytes)*100,0)) "% Used"
FROM    DBA_DATA_FILES DF,
       (SELECT file_id,
               sum(bytes) used_bytes
        FROM dba_extents
        GROUP by file_id) E,
       (SELECT sum(bytes) free_bytes,
               file_id
        FROM dba_free_space
        GROUP BY file_id) f
WHERE    e.file_id (+) = df.file_id
AND      df.file_id  = f.file_id (+)
ORDER BY df.tablespace_name,
         df.file_name
/
