DBA_UNDO_EXTENTS

DBA_UNDO_EXTENTS describes the extents comprising the segments in all undo tablespaces in the database.

Note:

The status of the undo space distribution reported by DBA_UNDO_EXTENTS is correct for the undo tablespace that is active on the instance on which DBA_UNDO_EXTENTS is queried. However, due to the use of in-memory information that is different on each instance, there can be a discrepancy in the status of the undo space distribution of undo tablespaces active on other instances when queried from one instance. This does not affect undo functionality and is only a reporting discrepancy for other instances' undo tablespace space distribution status. As a best practice, query the space distribution for an undo tablespace from the instance on which it is active.
