Oracle Tablespace Groups
Version 11.1
 
General
A tablespace group enables a user to consume temporary space from multiple tablespaces. A tablespace group has the following characteristics:
  • It contains at least one tablespace. There is no explicit limit on the maximum number of tablespaces that are contained in a group.
  • It shares the namespace of tablespaces, so its name cannot be the same as any tablespace.
You can specify a tablespace group name wherever a tablespace name would appear when you assign a default temporary tablespace for the database or a temporary tablespace for a user.

You do not explicitly create a tablespace group. Rather, it is created implicitly when you assign the first temporary tablespace to the group. The group is deleted when the last temporary tablespace it contains is removed from it.

Using a tablespace group, rather than a single temporary tablespace, can alleviate problems caused where one tablespace is inadequate to hold the results of a sort, particularly on a table that has many partitions. A tablespace group enables parallel execution servers in a single parallel operation to use multiple temporary tablespaces.
