Dear Experts,

Can you simply explain me usage of undo Tablespace of Oracle Database?

My Oracle Database version is 10.2 and it has 8GM undo Tablespace. Every time, once I check it, it fill up with more than 95% with data.

How can I get increased the free space of undo Tablespace?

I wouldn't worry about the undo tablespace.  Oracle manages that on its own.  Are you getting any errors?  Specifically ORA-01555?  That would indicate that you may need to change your parameters or increase the size of undo.

UNDO hold the uncommitted transactions; as johnsone points out, it's not a significant tuning issue UNLESS it's too small.  If you will search E-E for oracle undo you'll find a good number of previous answers (and save your points that way).  Also, obviously, the docs.oracle.com for the RTFM sources.  Try as a start:

I'm pleased to have helped; the "B" grade suggests I was deficient in some manner.  How could I have improved your satisfaction?
