CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#

In my previous post CURRENT_SCN and CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#, I had asked : "In which scenarios could the checkpoint_change# value differ between V$DATAFILE and V$DATAFILE_HEADER ?"




Here's a little demo :

SQL> create tablespace NEWTBS datafile '/tmp/newtbs.dbf' size 50M;

Tablespace created.

SQL> create table hemant.objcopy tablespace newtbs as select * from dba_objects;

Table created.

SQL> select file_id from dba_data_files where tablespace_name = 'NEWTBS';

   FILE_ID
----------
        15

SQL> alter system checkpoint;

System altered.

SQL> select f.checkpoint_change#, h.checkpoint_change#
  2  from v$datafile f, v$datafile_header h
  3  where f.file#=15 and h.file#=15 and f.file#=h.file#;

CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#
------------------ ------------------
           5312187            5312187

SQL> 
I then backup the tablespace :

RMAN> backup tablespace newtbs;

Starting backup at 20-MAY-12
using target database control file instead of recovery catalog

RMAN> 
Next, I update the object(s) in the tablespace.

SQL> connect hemant/hemant    
Connected.
SQL> select segment_name from user_segments where tablespace_name = 'NEWTBS';

SEGMENT_NAME
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OBJCOPY

SQL> insert into objcopy select * from dba_objects;

76670 rows created.

SQL> update objcopy set owner = owner || '_1';

153301 rows updated.

SQL> commit;

Commit complete.

SQL> 
SQL> alter system switch logfile;

System altered.

SQL>
I then remove and restore the datafile :
SQL> connect / as sysdba
Connected.
SQL> !rm /tmp/newtbs*.dbf

SQL> alter database datafile 15 offline;

Database altered.

SQL> 
RMAN> restore datafile 15;

Starting restore at 20-MAY-12

RMAN> 
If I now query the V$DATAFILE and V$DATAFILE_HEADER views, I see :

SQL> select f.checkpoint_change#, h.checkpoint_change#
  2  from v$datafile f, v$datafile_header h
  3  where f.file#=15 and h.file#=15 and f.file#=h.file#
  4  /

CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#
------------------ ------------------
           5315901            5313637

SQL> 
I then RECOVER the datafile :
SQL> recover datafile 15;
ORA-00279: change 5313637 generated at 05/20/2012 23:09:08 needed for thread 1
ORA-00289: suggestion :

Log applied.
Media recovery complete.
SQL> 
SQL> select f.checkpoint_change#, h.checkpoint_change#
  2  from v$datafile f, v$datafile_header h
  3  where f.file#=15 and h.file#=15 and f.file#=h.file#
  4  /

CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#
------------------ ------------------
           5321980            5321980

SQL> 
Note : The CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# has been incremented and both the views now show the same value. Bringing the datafile online again increments the CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#.

SQL> select f.checkpoint_change#, h.checkpoint_change#
  2  from v$datafile f, v$datafile_header h
  3  where f.file#=15 and h.file#=15 and f.file#=h.file#
  4  /

CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# CHECKPOINT_CHANGE#
------------------ ------------------
           5322278            5322278

SQL> 
I could ask the question : Why is the CHECKPOINT_CHANGE# incremented for a datafile that was OFFLINE and [merely] RECOVERed ?  But I am sure that you know the answer now.
