While I was learning MY oracle 9iworkforce developement program ...on 2007
I learned some thing like
1) we can get the info on 'v$' views using 'v$fixed_table'

so based on that ...
we can get some more info for the 'v$' views source as they are created based on 'GV$' views..and again these 'gv$' info from 'gv$fixed_table' and view definition.the the point is ....
[using v$fixed_view_definition and dbms_metada.get_ddl methods]

As these 'Gv$' and 'v$' views are actually based on some 'xS' base tables... which has no furthur info.
(like ...'X$KQFTA'--->'kernel query, fixed table' )so My question is does any one know the base table`s source code [not the scripts at %oracle_home%\rdbms\admin\] if exist? or can we query for the base tables of the fixed tables..?

TOday I have read one blog (One of the Oracle ACe directors blog)
saying he found this recently..but this kind of stuff is already provided by Oracle on its students volumes ex:oracle 9i Database administration fundamentals 1 and 2 student volume guides)

Why is this question in the Moderator discussions forum? What does this have to do with OraFAQ forum moderation?

As I am asking for Oracle internals ...
I thought That I should not discuss this ind of internal stuff directly on a public forum.
As most of the Moderators are DBA as senior than me ..I asked this here.
If there is no harm asking like this in a public forum In your openion please move this topic.

Thank you
sriram

This is still a public forum. Being moderator makes none special.
>>we can get some more info for the 'v$' views source as they are created based on 'GV$' views
Actually, GV$ views are Global Views for RAC instances.
Nothing more.
The v$stuff are synonyms for v_$stuff.
These v$stuff come from x$stuff which are actually C memory Structures which is Oracle's internal stuff.
>>so My question is does any one know the base table`s source code
You can find bits and pieces of information about it in web and metalink. It is oracle's source code. So all you can find is information on how to use it or what kind of information would be there.

Unless you have a very specific question, you have to help yourself.

Not really, no more (for many of them but the oldest ones) since many versions, they are calls to internal procedures.

You can't unless you are a Windows expert knowing its internal code.

My bad.
What I actually supposed to post is:

These v$stuff come from x$stuff which are actually interfaces to C memory Structures which is Oracle's internal stuff.


I never got a chance to explore these after Oracle8 as Oracle was really exploding with new features.
Too much to keep up Smile

One more key point to my notes of Oracle.Your quotes giving me more interest on this.
For myself I will definitely do some justice...I will try my level best on this .
Thanks for the input Michel and all

OK, let say that you now know, for instance, that v$session_wait is the result of applying some function (that you succeed to reverse engineer) on memory data that are at address 0x88888888.
I'd say and then?
