Re: Moving tables/indexes from one tablespace to another

John:
    alter table <table_name> move tablespace <tspace>
is very fast and I highly recommend using it.

However..  Be very careful with your stats.  It's kinda a catch-22.
After you move the table to the new tablespace you will not have stats
on the table.
You'll also need to rebuild your indexes. =20

You can compute stats on your table first, as long as you don't set
cascade to true.  (Error 20000 index is unusable state)

If you don't have stats on your table and you rebuild the index with
compute statistics, the compute on the index will generate some table
stats for you.  You'll get some stats on your table that might not be
what you want.  In particular, the avg_row_len will be set to a
default of 100.

If you have a very large table that takes a long time to generate
stats, you might want to export the stats before you move the table,
then import after your move.

If the table is smaller, then this (I believe) works:  alter table
move tablespace, compute stats with cascade=3Dfalse, alter index rebuild
compute stats.

HTH!
