I have to delete about 200000 old rows and when i run a script with a commit point at 100, i get a tablespace error: ORA-30036: unable to extend segment by 8 in undo tablespace 'UNDOTBS_01'.
when i run the script at 10 or 50 commit point, i get long runing script error:
ORA-01555: snapshot too old: rollback segment number  with name "" too small
What should i do next?
