Perfstat Cron Jobs

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

Here is the update on changing the perfstat statspack job that I spoke of earlier. The question was how can I get statspacks to run every 15 minutes during OLTP and every 2 hours during batch. My thought is a Cron Job that will run the SQL for you. Just make a connection to the DB using SQLPLUS and call the SQL file with the appropriate sql to change the job. Since the user asking the question had the SQL done here is a sample of how I would write the script to run in Cron.

sqlplus -S User/Password@$instance @/full/path/to/file/filename.sql

That is it. Pretty straightforward really. Hope that helps. If you have any questions about this or anything else just head over to and click the ‘Submit a Question’ link and I will get back to you.
