Installing STATSPACK

Installation of STATSPACK is actually quite simple:

  • Create a tablespace in which to store the captured STATSPACK statistics. Usually 100-500 Megabytes is enough, but one should certainly set aside 500 Megabytes if STATSPACK is to be used on a continuing basis. This tablespace is normally called perfstat.
  • From the sys user, the statspack user, table, and packaged creation script should be run. Usually this is: $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/spcreate.sq; however, this may be different on older Oracle releases.
  • Log in as the perfstat user and execute the statspack.snap procedure.
  • Following a reasonable collection interval, the statspack.snap procedure should be re-run.
  • From the perfstat user, the STATSPACK reporting script:

    $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/spreport, should be run for the interval over which statistics were just collected.
