A tablespace is just a logical grouping of files in your Oracle database. But behind that simple definition sits a remarkable evolution of how tablespaces are defined and managed internally. This episode covers the early days of tablespaces and the pitfalls with managing their space utilisation from within the data dictionary. Then we'll move into the changes and improvements that with Oracle 8i and 8i. Finally we cover some of the more niche tablespace types that you may possibly have never used or even heard of. This episodes also sets you up for the big topic to cover in the next episode ... the ROWID. Catch me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/connor_mc_d if you have questions.
