On 10/2/06, Susan White
have an 8.1.6 database running on Linux. One of the tables contains two
blob columns. About 3 weeks ago, one of the admins decided to do
maintenance on the blob columns by reinitializing those he determined had no
data. At this point, the database started throwing ORA-600 errors and
writing frequently to an smon trace file. We don't normally support
this database, so I just heard about it today.
I'm curious about a couple things:
1) Howd did the admin detemine that the blob 'had no data'?
2) What exactly is 'reinitialize'?
