Hello All,
I am using the below mentioned sql script(oracle 10g database) to capture the schema growth for the last 1 week. I referred for the following link:http://www.dba-oracle.com/t_database_growth_reports.htm for getting this sql:

select sum(space_used_delta)/1024/1024 "Space used(M)", sum(c.bytes)/1024/1024 "Total space(M)", round(sum(space_used_delta)/sum(c.bytes)*100, 2) || '%' "Percent of Total Disk Usage"
from
dba_hist_snapshot sn,
dba_hist_seg_stat a, dba_objects b, dba_segments c
where end_interval_time > trunc(sysdate) - 7
and sn.snap_id = a.snap_id
and b.object_id = a.obj#
and b.owner = c.owner
and b.object_name = c.segment_name
and space_used_delta > 0
and c.owner = 'DITMGR'

Questions:
1) Sometimes, I am getting the value of  "Percent of Total Disk Usage" (third field in the above sql) as greater than 100%. Am I missing anything in the sql? How can it be more than 100%.
2) Per my understanding, the first field "Space Used (M)" (from the above sql) provides the delta space consumed for the last 1 week only and not the total space consumed before 1 week(since I am using the WHERE clause condition "end_interval_time > trunc(sysdate) - 7"). Is my understanding correct? I am surprised by the output and that is why I wanted to confirm
3) Per my understanding, the second field "Total Space(M)" is the total schema size and it should not vary based on the where clause condition here - "end_interval_time > trunc(sysdate) - 7" or "end_interval_time > trunc(sysdate) - 30" should yield the same schema size in the above sql. Correct?

It would be really helpful if you could help me in understanding the above mentioned questions. Thanks.

Did you go download the complete script?

From the link you posted there did you see the line:
...
dba_segments c
see code depot for full script
where end_interval_time > trunc(sysdate) - &days_back
...

Sorry but I'm away from the office today and cannot search for them on my mobile device.

I'll look for some when I get back in.

I would try searching for the views used in the SQL you have: dba_hist_snapshot and dba_hist_seg_stat
Those are not common view and any results should be related to what you are after.
