I am using Oracle 8.1.7 in a 64-bit version together with SAP and HP. My tables are very much fragmented, and I...
heard that there is a limit of the fragments of a table. Do you know something about it, and what is the limit for the number of fragments that ORACLE can handle? I intend to mirate to ORACLE 9.2. Are there the same limitations of the fragments? What are the limits depending on?
See the following link for some great info on this topic with additional resources quoted as well: http://www.jlcomp.demon.co.uk/faq/table_frag.html.
If you're still concerned, you can get a script from Metalink (you have to have a Metalink account) for looking at fragmentation.
