I have a 6 gb trace file but keep getting space errors when trying to run tkprofs against it.
Note: this is a follow-on to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/System/Unix_-_Posix/Q_25281421.html
- see my follow-on actions in subsequent comment.
There is around 50gb free space, here:
Filesystem 1024-blocks Free %Used Iused %Iused Mounted on
/dev/slice6lv 150208512 70837372 53% 25447 1% /slice6
but when I run tkprofs, I get this error:
[/slice6/bpeck] tkprof edwdev02_ora_1429584.trc nasco_md_tkprof.txt explain=/ sort='(prsela,exeela,fchel

could not allocate space of size 360
It seems like it's some "internal" size to Oracle's ability to process the file rather than raw disk space being the issue, but that's just a guess.
