I have more than one large insert (average 5 million rows) batch job that I would like to run at the same time and avoid rollback errors.
I think you're asking how to point a long-running transaction to a specified large rollback segment. All you need to do is to create a large rollback segment, bring it online and set your insert transaction to point to that rollback segment. You'll use SET TRANSACTION USE ROLLBACK SEGMENT REAL_BIG_RBS just before your insert to point the insert transaction to the big rollback segment you created.
To determine which rollback segment a transaction is using at any given time, you can use this query to make sure your INSERT is using the correct RBS:
SELECT r.name rollback_seg_name, l.sid oracle_pid, p.spid system_pid, nvl(p.username,'NO TRANSACTION') username, p.terminal FROM v$lock l, v$process p, v$rollname r WHERE l.sid = p.pid(+) AND trunc(l.id1(+)/65536) = r.usn AND l.type(+) = 'TX' AND l.lmode(+) = 6 ORDER BY r.name ;
