V$OSSTAT

V$OSSTAT displays system utilization statistics from the operating system. One row is returned for each system statistic.

Column Datatype Description
STAT_NAME VARCHAR2(64) Name of the statistic (see Table 8-3)
VALUE NUMBER Instantaneous statistic value
OSSTAT_ID NUMBER Statistic ID
COMMENTS VARCHAR2(64) Any additional OS-specific clarifications for the statistic
CUMULATIVE VARCHAR2(3) Indicates whether the statistic is cumulative (that is, accumulates over time) (YES) or not (NO)

Table 8-3 V$OSSTAT Statistics

Statistic Name Description

NUM_CPUS

Number of CPUs or processors available

IDLE_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been idle, totalled over all processors

BUSY_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing user or kernel code, totalled over all processors

USER_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing user code, totalled over all processors

SYS_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing kernel code, totalled over all processors

IOWAIT_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been waiting for I/O to complete, totalled over all processors

NICE_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing low-priority user code, totalled over all processors

AVG_IDLE_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been idle, averaged over all processors

AVG_BUSY_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing user or kernel code, averaged over all processors

AVG_USER_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing user code, averaged over all processors

AVG_SYS_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing kernel code, averaged over all processors

AVG_IOWAIT_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been waiting for I/O to complete, averaged over all processors

AVG_NICE_TIME

Number of hundredths of a second that a processor has been busy executing low-priority user code, averaged over all processors

OS_CPU_WAIT_TIME

Total number of hundredths of a second that processes have been in a ready state, waiting to be selected by the operating system scheduler to run

RSRC_MGR_CPU_WAIT_TIME

Total number of hundredths of a second that Oracle processes have been in a ready state, waiting for CPU to be available for their consumer group in the currently active resource plan

VM_PAGE_IN_BYTES

Total number of bytes of data that have been paged in due to virtual memory paging

VM_PAGE_OUT_BYTES

Total number of bytes of data that have been paged out due to virtual memory paging

PHYSICAL_MEMORY_BYTES

Total number of bytes of physical memory

LOAD

Current number of processes that are either running or in the ready state, waiting to be selected by the operating-system scheduler to run. On many platforms, this statistic reflects the average load over the past minute.

NUM_CPU_CORES

Number of CPU cores available (includes subcores of multicore CPUs as well as single-core CPUs)

NUM_CPU_SOCKETS

Number of CPU sockets available (represents an absolute count of CPU chips on the system, regardless of multithreading or multi-core architectures)

NUM_VCPUS

Number of virtual CPUs available

NUM_LCPUS

Number of logical CPUs available (includes hardware threads if hardware threading is turned on)

TCP_SEND_SIZE_MIN

Minimum size of the TCP send buffer

TCP_SEND_SIZE_DEFAULT

Default size of the TCP send buffer

TCP_SEND_SIZE_MAX

Maximum size of the TCP send buffer

TCP_RECEIVE_SIZE_MIN

Minimum size of the TCP receive buffer

TCP_RECEIVE_SIZE_DEFAULT

Default size of the TCP receive buffer

TCP_RECEIVE_SIZE_MAX

Maximum size of the TCP receive buffer

GLOBAL_SEND_SIZE_MAX

Maximum size of the global send buffer

GLOBAL_RECEIVE_SIZE_MAX

Maximum size of the global receive buffer


Note:

The availability of all statistics except for NUM_CPUS and RSRC_MGR_CPU_WAIT_TIME is subject to the operating system platform on which the Oracle Database is running.
