Are you asking a general question about compression of data in Oracle?  Oracle offers some different kinds of compression, but most (if not all)of them are only available as extra-cost options or at least require Enterprise Edition of Oracle.  Also, in my experience, compression is most useful in partitioned tables, where historical information can be compressed, but current partitions remain uncompressed.

Or are you asking specifically about something named "dbms_compression" in Oracle?  I don't recognize that name.

There are only two subprograms in that package.

This one are you looking for an example with?

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/appdev.112/e40758/d_compress.htm#ARPLS65601

There are a few examples out there from a simple Google.

For example:
http://uhesse.com/2011/09/12/dbms_compression-example/

If you can provide more information on what you are trying to do with that package, we can likely provide better information.

I believe this is what I'm looking for.  In my case i'm trying to find an example of how to set  
this up for non-partitioned table.

set serveroutput on
declare
v_blkcnt_cmp pls_integer;
v_blkcnt_uncmp pls_integer;
v_row_cmp pls_integer;
v_row_uncmp pls_integer;
v_cmp_ratio number;
v_comptype_str varchar2(60);
begin
dbms_compression.get_compression_ratio(
scratchtbsname => upper('&ScratchTBS'),
ownname => user,
tabname => upper('&TableName'),
partname => NULL,
comptype => dbms_compression.comp_for_query_high,
blkcnt_cmp => v_blkcnt_cmp,
blkcnt_uncmp => v_blkcnt_uncmp,
row_cmp => v_row_cmp,
row_uncmp => v_row_uncmp,
cmp_ratio => v_cmp_ratio,
comptype_str => v_comptype_str, subset_numrows=>&num_rows );
dbms_output.put_line('Estimated Compression Ratio: '||to_char(v_cmp_ratio));
dbms_output.put_line('Blocks used by compressed sample: '||to_char(v_blkcnt_cmp));
dbms_output.put_line('Blocks used by uncompressed sample: '||to_char(v_blkcnt_uncmp));
end;

Tried it again, for some reason this time did not ask about partition name.   Still running.

Then you must have had the partname parameter in the original script you ran?

Scratch table too small.  Bombed after three hours.  Start from scratch.
Thanx for the docs and sample.  That's the same sample i picked:-)
Will try digesting the docs in the morning

markgeer, it came with 11.2 and 12.  I think it was dbms_comp_advisor before 11.2

Finished.  Now to get a script that will execute dbms_compression once for each partition.
