“Free” DBA_HIST AWR views in 11g…

Tanel Poder


I just noticed this in 11g Licensing doc ( http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28359_01/license.111/b28287/options.htm#sthref69 ):

This exception is not present in 10.2 license guide, so before 11g you can query V$SEGMENT_STATISTICS and V$UNDOSTAT’s history “for free” :)

Of course, collecting this data manually with a 1-line PL/SQL loop script isn’t hard either :)
