7.68 V$ASM_OPERATION

In an Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM) instance, V$ASM_OPERATION displays one row for every active Oracle ASM long running operation executing in the Oracle ASM instance.

Column Datatype Description

GROUP_NUMBER

NUMBER

Disk group number (primary key). This is the foreign key to the V$ASM_DISKGROUP view.

OPERATION

CHAR(5)

Type of the operation:

  • REBAL - Rebalance pending for this group. The disk group is rebalancing.

  • REMIRROR - Remirror is pending for this group.

  • SCRUB - Scrubbing is pending for this group.

Starting with Oracle Database 12c, new queries should use the PASS column instead of this column.

PASS

VARCHAR2(9)

Type of the operation:

  • REBALANCE - Rebalance pending for this group. The disk group is rebalancing.

  • RESYNC - Resync operation in progress to bring one or more Oracle ASM disks online

  • COMPACT - Oracle ASM is moving user data closer together, which improves performance by reducing seek distance

  • RESILVER - This value appears in Oracle Exadata environments when WriteBack FlashCache is enabled

  • SCRUBBING - The disk group is scrubbing.

Starting with Oracle Database 12c, new queries should use this column instead of the OPERATION column.

STATE

VARCHAR2(4)

State of the operation:

  • WAIT - No operations running for the group

  • EST - An estimate is computed on the amount of work to be done for the rebalance

  • RUN - Operation running for the group

  • REAP - Operation is being run down

  • DONE - Displayed for a pass that is complete

  • ERRS - Operation halted by errors

Estimates are computed in parallel in the background while the work is being executed. Thus, the transition from the EST to the RUN state may be extremely fast.

POWER

NUMBER

Power requested for the operation as specified by the ASM_POWER_LIMIT initialization parameter or command syntax. Or, power requested for the operation as specified by the power option of the scrubbing SQL syntax.

ACTUAL

NUMBER

Power allocated to the operation

SOFAR

NUMBER

Number of Allocation Units that are being moved per minute by the operation. Or, the number of Allocation Units that have been scrubbed so far.

EST_WORK

NUMBER

Estimated number of Allocation Units that have to be moved by the operation. Or, the estimated number of Allocation Units that have to be scrubbed by the scrubbing operation.

EST_RATE

NUMBER

Estimated number of Allocation Units that are being moved per minute by the operation

EST_MINUTES

NUMBER

Estimated amount of time (in minutes) that the remainder of the operation is expected to take

ERROR_CODE

VARCHAR2(44)

Oracle external error code; NULL if no error

CON_ID

NUMBER

The ID of the container to which the data pertains. Possible values include:

  • 0: This value is used for rows containing data that pertain to the entire CDB. This value is also used for rows in non-CDBs.

  • 1: This value is used for rows containing data that pertain to only the root

  • n: Where n is the applicable container ID for the rows containing data

For this view, the value is always 0.
