Ok, I've got a "runaway session" in my PeopleSoft database that's been processing since last night. I have just now started working on this and I wanted to get some input: SELECT p1 file#, p2 block#, p3 class# FROM v$session_wait WHERE event = 'direct path read temp' ; File# Block# Class# 402 862533 15 SELECT relative_fno, owner, segment_name, segment_type FROM dba_extents WHERE file_id = 402 --AND &block BETWEEN block_id AND block_id + &block - 1; NO ROWS FOUND What?? If I look at both V$DATAFILE and V$TEMPFILE I have no File# = 402 so what is going on? Like I said, I just started working on this so I may be missing something simple...
