索引使用空间异常增长一例

客户的某套系统上有一个表空间近日使用率异常增长,该表空间用以存储索引段,经过定位发现一个原本只有200M左右的索引使用将近30+G的空间,而且表现为绝大多数是未格式化的数据块。以下为通过 show_space脚本收集的段信息:

Unformatted Blocks = 1772568
Blocks with 00-25% free space = 0
Blocks with 26-50% free space = 2173
Blocks with 51-75% free space = 0
Blocks with 76-100% free space = 0
Full Blocks = 60762

Unformatted Blocks总数1772568,共使用1772568*16k=27G. 一个索引占用如此多的未格式化块似乎不可思议,首先想到的可能是一个威力惊人的Bug。

探索MOS,可以发现以下这个有趣的note:

Applies to:

Oracle Server – Enterprise Edition – Version: 10.2.0.3
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The problem as observed is that the space allocated for a table/index(partition) is far too high and keeps growing.

Using the AVG_ROW_SIZE * NUM_ROWS shows that the space as needed would be far less that the allocated space (in some cases allocated xxGb while xxMb would be expected).

Cause

Bug 5987262 TABLESPACE IS ABNORMALLY INCREASED BY UNFORMATTED BLOCKS.   This bug was closed as duplicate of unpublished Bug 5890312 HANG OBSERVED WHILE CREATING CTXCAT INDEX

The following PL/SQL block will show the space usage in the (partitioned) table

If the value of UNF makes up the major part of the space as allocated,  unpublished bug 5890312 is hit.
In a specific case a table had a value of 4GB unformatted blocks out of 4.3GB allocated blocks.

Solution

The actions as needed to resolve this issue are:

1) Install the patch for unpublished Bug 5890312 in order to prevent future occurrences

2) Resolve the current space allocation, options:
– shrink the table (partition)
– recreate the table (partition)
– recreate the index (partition)

以上关于表空间异常增长且表(或表分区)和索引(或索引分区)中分配了大量未格式化的块的描述与我们的问题十分相似,但该文档的指出可能发生该问题的版本是10.2.0.3,而我们的版本已经是10.2.0.4了,是否又一次是Oracle的”伪修复”呢?怀着疑虑我们提交了SR,希望MOS帮助我们确认是否”hit Bug 729149.1″。

来自MOS的回复:

“The bug is fixed in 10.2.0.4.3 as well as 11.1.0.6.
You might as well apply the lastest PSU available for your platform: 10.2.0.4.4 Patch:9352164

I’m afraid there is no one off (interim) patch available for 10.2.0.4 on Solaris SPARC.
It was only provided for 9.2.0.8 and 10.2.0.3.
The one off patch 5890312 has been made available in Recommended Patch Sets (PSU): 10.2.0.4.3 and 10.2.0.4.4.

More information about Oracle Recommended Patches and their availability can be found in:
NOTE.756671.1 Oracle Recommended Patches — Oracle Database

If you have trouble applying any of the recommended PSUs, please let me know and i will log a one off backport request on your behalf  to ask development is it would be possible to provide you with the one off patch on 10.2.0.4.”

看起来我们并不走运,在10.2.0.4的基础上甚至没有one-off补丁,如果要彻底解决只能打PSU。

这个Bug最早出现是在9.2.0.8上,有一个相关的说明:
