V$LOGMNR_CONTENTS

V$LOGMNR_CONTENTS contains log history information. To query this view, you must have the SELECT ANY TRANSACTION privilege.

When a SELECT statement is executed against the V$LOGMNR_CONTENTS view, the archive redo log files are read sequentially. Translated records from the redo log files are returned as rows in the V$LOGMNR_CONTENTS view. This continues until either the filter criteria specified at startup (EndTime or endScn) are met or the end of the archive log file is reached.

Column Datatype Description
SCN NUMBER System change number (SCN) when the database change was made
START_SCN NUMBER System change number (SCN) when the transaction that contains this change started; only meaningful if the COMMITTED_DATA_ONLY option was chosen in a DBMS_LOGMNR.START_LOGMNR() invocation, NULL otherwise. This column may also be NULL if the query is run over a time/SCN range that does not contain the start of the transaction.
COMMIT_SCN NUMBER System change number (SCN) when the transaction committed; only meaningful if the COMMITTED_DATA_ONLY option was chosen in a DBMS_LOGMNR.START_LOGMNR() invocation
TIMESTAMP DATE Timestamp when the database change was made
START_TIMESTAMP DATE Timestamp when the transaction that contains this change started; only meaningful if the COMMITTED_DATA_ONLY option was chosen in a DBMS_LOGMNR.START_LOGMNR() invocation, NULL otherwise. This column may also be NULL if the query is run over a time/SCN range that does not contain the start of the transaction.
COMMIT_TIMESTAMP DATE Timestamp when the transaction committed; only meaningful if the COMMITTED_DATA_ONLY option was chosen in a DBMS_LOGMNR.START_LOGMNR() invocation
XIDUSN NUMBER Transaction ID undo segment number of the transaction that generated the change

TX_NAME VARCHAR2(256) Name of the transaction that made the change; only meaningful if the transaction is a named transaction
OPERATION VARCHAR2(32) User level SQL operation that made the change:
  • INSERT - Change was caused by an insert statement

ROLLBACK NUMBER 1 = if the redo record was generated because of a partial or a full rollback of the associated transaction

0 = otherwise

SEG_OWNER VARCHAR2(32) Owner of the modified data segment
SEG_NAME VARCHAR2(256) Name of the modified data segment
TABLE_NAME VARCHAR2(32) Name of the modified table (in case the redo pertains to a table modification)
SEG_TYPE NUMBER Type of the modified data segment:
  • 0 - UNKNOWN

  • 1 - INDEX

  • 2 - TABLE

  • 19 - TABLE PARTITION

  • 20 - INDEX PARTITION

  • 34 - TABLE SUBPARTITION

  • All other values - UNSUPPORTED

SEG_TYPE_NAME VARCHAR2(32) Segment type name:
  • UNKNOWN

  • INDEX

  • TABLE

  • TABLE PARTITION

  • INDEX PARTITION

  • TABLE SUBPARTITION

  • UNSUPPORTED

TABLE_SPACE VARCHAR2(32) Name of the tablespace containing the modified data segment. This column is not populated for rows where the value of the OPERATION column is DDL. This is because DDL may operate on more than one tablespace.
ROW_ID VARCHAR2(18) Row ID of the row modified by the change (only meaningful if the change pertains to a DML). This will be NULL if the redo record is not associated with a DML.
USERNAME VARCHAR2(30) Name of the user who executed the transaction
OS_USERNAME VARCHAR2(4000) Name of the operating system user
MACHINE_NAME VARCHAR2(4000) Machine from which the user connected to the database
AUDIT_SESSIONID NUMBER Audit session ID associated with the user session making the change
SESSION# NUMBER Session number of the session that made the change
SERIAL# NUMBER Serial number of the session that made the change
SESSION_INFO VARCHAR2(4000) Information about the database session that executed the transaction. Contains process information, machine name from which the user logged in, and so on. A possible SESSION_INFO column may contain the following:
  • login_username = HR

  • client_info =

  • OS_username = jkundu

  • Machine_name = nirvan

  • OS_terminal = pts/31

  • OS_program_name = sqlplus@nirvan (TNS V1-V3)

THREAD# NUMBER Number of the thread that made the change to the database
SEQUENCE# NUMBER Sequence number of the redo log that contained the redo record corresponding to the database change
RBASQN NUMBER Sequence# associated with the Redo Block Address (RBA) of the redo record associated with the change
RBABLK NUMBER RBA block number within the log file
RBABYTE NUMBER RBA byte offset within the block
UBAFIL NUMBER Undo Block Address (UBA) file number identifying the file containing the undo block

ABS_FILE# NUMBER Data block absolute file number of the block changed by the transaction
REL_FILE# NUMBER Data block relative file number. The file number is relative to the tablespace of the object.
DATA_BLK# NUMBER Data block number within the file
DATA_OBJ# NUMBER Data block object number identifying the object
DATA_OBJV# NUMBER Version number of the table being modified
DATA_OBJD# NUMBER Data block data object number identifying the object within the tablespace
SQL_REDO VARCHAR2(4000) Reconstructed SQL statement that is equivalent to the original SQL statement that made the change. Refer to Oracle Database Utilities before executing SQL_REDO to your database.

LogMiner does not generate SQL redo for temporary tables. In such a case, this column will contain the string "/* No SQL_REDO for temporary tables */".

SQL_UNDO VARCHAR2(4000) Reconstructed SQL statement that can be used to undo the effect of the original statement that made the change. DDL statements have no corresponding SQL_UNDO. Refer to Oracle Database Utilities before executing SQL_UNDO to your database.

LogMiner does not generate SQL undo for temporary tables. In such a case, this column will contain the string "/* No SQL_UNDO for temporary tables */".

RS_ID VARCHAR2(32) Record set ID. The tuple (RS_ID, SSN) together uniquely identifies a logical row change. This will usually mean one row from V$LOGMNR_CONTENTS, but could be more than one row if a single SQL statement for either the Redo or Undo would be too large to fit within the respective columns SQL_UNDO or SQL_REDO. RS_ID uniquely identifies the redo record that generated the row.
SSN NUMBER SQL sequence number. Used in conjunction with RS_ID, this uniquely identifies a logical row change, shown as one or more rows from the V$LOGMNR_CONTENTS view.
CSF NUMBER Continuation SQL flag. Possible values are:
  • 0 - Indicates SQL_REDO and SQL_UNDO is contained within the same row

  • 1 - Indicates that either SQL_REDO or SQL_UNDO is greater than 4000 bytes in size and is continued in the next row returned by the view

INFO VARCHAR2(32) Informational message about the row. For instance, the string "USER DDL" indicates that the DDL statement returned in the SQL_REDO column was the top-level DDL executed by the user and the string "INTERNAL DDL" indicates that the DDL statement returned in the SQL_REDO column was executed internally by the RDBMS.
STATUS NUMBER A value of 0 indicates that the reconstructed SQL statements as shown in the SQL_REDO and SQL_UNDO columns are valid executable SQL statements. Otherwise, the reconstructed SQL statements are not executable. This may be due to the fact that no data dictionary was provided to LogMiner for the analysis, or that the data dictionary provided did not have the definition of the object being mined.

A value of 5 indicates that this row is part of a change to an XMLType column or table and the XML document must be assembled before being applied.

REDO_VALUE NUMBER Used as input to the DBMS_LOGMNR.MINE_VALUE() and DBMS_LOGMNR.COLUMN_PRESENT() functions
UNDO_VALUE NUMBER Used as input to the DBMS_LOGMNR.MINE_VALUE() and DBMS_LOGMNR.COLUMN_PRESENT() functions
SAFE_RESUME_SCN NUMBER Reserved for future use
CSCN NUMBER This column is deprecated in favor of the COMMIT_SCN column
OBJECT_ID RAW(16) Object identifier for DMLs to XMLType tables. For changes to non-typed tables, this column is NULL.
