SHUTDOWN NORMAL or SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE hangs. In the alert.log, you see only

the following:

There are no ORA errors or trace files.

Scope & Application



During a SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE and SHUTDOWN NORMAL, SMON is cleaning up extents

which are no longer needed and marking them as freed.

Either wait for SMON to clean up the free extents in the database as it

shuts down or perform. a SHUTDOWN ABORT to shutdown the instance. A SHUTDOWN

ABORT will not perform. a clean shutdown.

Verify that temporary segments are decreasing


To verify that the temporary segments are decreasing have an active session

available in Server Manager or SQLPLUS during the SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE. Issue the following

query to ensure the database is not hanging, but is actually perform. extent


SVRMGR/SQL> select count(block#) from fet$;




SVRMGR/SQL> select count(block#) from uet$;




After some time has elapsed, reissue the query and see that the values for fet$

have increased while the values or uet$ have decreased:

SVRMGR/SQL> select count(block#) from fet$;




SVRMGR/SQL> select count(block#) from uet$;




During shutdown the SMON process is cleaning up extents and updating the data

dictionary tables with the marked free extents. As the extents are marked as

freed, they are removed from the table for used extents, UET$ and placed on the

table for free extents, FET$.

How to Avoid creating many Temporary Extents


Once the database has shutdown cleanly, to avoid creating many temporary

extents change the initial and next extent sizes on temporary tablespaces

to a more appropriate size:


Note: If the temporary tablespace is of type TEMPORARY, then this change

will only affect temporary segments created after issuing the above

command. Any existing temporary segments already in the TEMPORARY tablespace

will not be affected till the instance is restarted. On shutdown, existing

temporary segments are dropped. If the TEMPORARY TABLESPACE is of type

PERMANENT, then cleanup is performed by SMON after completion of the process

using it.

Increasing the initial and next extent size will decrease the number of extents

that are allocated to temporary segments. Since there are fewer extents to

deallocate, the database should shutdown more speedily.

Take the following scenario:

A database was subject to large sorts with the following sort parameter in

the "init.ora" file:

- sort_area_size=1000000

The temporary tablespaces for this database were all created with initial and

next extents sized at 50k and the total database size was about 300mb.

Database sorts will utilize memory as much as possible based on the "init.ora"

parameter "sort_area_size". Once this memory-based sort area is filled, the

database will utilize the temporary table space associated with the database

user to complete the sort operation. During a shutdown normal, the database

will attempt to clean up the temporary tablespaces.

If a small extent size is used, then a large number of extents will be created

for a large sort. The cleanup of the temporary tablespace takes much longer

with a large number of extents.



You have to do a shutdown abort and then bring the database

back up to run the suggested queries.
