For example, I need inforamtion about max-extends, FreeSpace in tablespaces, .. .

Click "Free DBA Toolkit".

Then you will find a lot of scripts. Analyze them and you will get the infos that you need.

Hi,

usally, you go fine by
dba_segments
dba_tables
dba_indexes

Have the full selection:
select * from dba_synonyms where synonym_name like 'DBA%';

Good hunting

Re: Schema of Oracle Database (System Tables)

Hi,

You can do following script:

select * from tab
where tname like 'DBA%'

Of course you still have to do a describe of the tables you are interested in.
