Monitoring active tblspaces

Monitor tblspaces to determine which tables are active. Active tables are those that a thread has currently opened.

Output from the onstat -t option includes the tblspace number and the following four fields.

Field
Description
npages
Pages allocated to the tblspace
nused
Pages used from this allocated pool
nextns
Number of extents used
npdata
Number of data pages used
If a specific operation needs more pages than are available (npages minus nused), a new extent is required. If enough space is available in this chunk, the database server allocates the extent here; if not, the database server looks for space in other available chunks. If none of the chunks contains adequate contiguous space, the database server uses the largest block of contiguous space that it can find in the dbspace. Figure 1 shows an example of the output from this option.
