SELECT index_name FROM user_indexes WHERE table_name='EMP';For all indexes that are returned, issue the following:
ALTER INDEX index_name MONITORING USAGE;After exercising your application, query the V$OBJECT_USAGE view. The USED column of this view will contain YES if the index was used; otherwise, it will contain NO.

ALTER INDEX index_name NOMONITORING USAGE;
