HI guys

I have a temporary tablespace with 26 GB size, i think that is to much. The problem is that this table has been full for 4 or 5 months.

I have some questions about it.

1.- Can I delete the content from this tablespace to get a empty tablespace?

2.- Why has this tablespace been full for 5 months?

3.- Does this issue generate that the database performance is low?

4.- What can i do know who is using al this space?

i ran a query to know who is using this space but didn´t get any row.

SQL> select * from v$sort_usage;

no rows selected

Thanks for all your coments.
