Auto Partitioning Recommendations for Oracle

Brendan Tierney checks out some recommendations:

In a previous blog post I gave an overview of the DBMS_AUTO_PARTITION package in Oracle Autonomous Database. This looked at how you can get started and to setup Auto Partitioning and to allow it to automatically implement partitioning.

This might not be something the DBAs will want to happen for lots of different reasons. An alternative is to use DBMS_AUTO_PARTITION to make recommendations for tables where partitioning will have a performance improvement. The DBA can inspect these recommendations and decide which of these to implement.

Read on to see how you can run the recommender, as well as what a recommendation looks like.
