PARTITION clause to move a partition. For example, to move the most active partition to a tablespace that resides on its own set of disks (to balance I/O), not log the action, and compress the data, issue the following statement:
ALTER TABLE parts MOVE PARTITION depot2 TABLESPACE ts094 NOLOGGING COMPRESS;
This statement always drops the old partition segment and creates a new segment, even if you do not specify a new tablespace.
If you are moving a partition of a partitioned index-organized table, then you can specify the
TABLE clause as part of the
PARTITION clause, and the mapping table partition are moved to the new location along with the table partition.
For an interval or interval-* partitioned table, you can only move range partitions or interval partitions that have been materialized. A partition move operation does not move the transition point in an interval or interval-* partitioned table.
You can move a partition in a reference-partitioned table independent of the partition in the master table.
