The below query lists all of the foreign keys and the parent table and columns to which they relate.

SELECT a.owner , a.table_name , c.column_name ,
 b.owner , b.table_name , d.column_name 
FROM dba_constraints a, dba_constraints b,
 dba_cons_columns c, dba_cons_columns d
WHERE a.r_constraint_name = b.constraint_name
 AND a.constraint_type = 'R'
 AND b.constraint_type = 'P'
 AND a.r_owner=b.owner
 AND a.constraint_name = c.constraint_name
 AND b.constraint_name=d.constraint_name
 AND a.owner = c.owner
 AND a.table_name=c.table_name

This parameter in the init.ora is the most important. This can be done only during creation time. If you have already created the Database you cannot change this value. You will have to re-create the Database with a different size.

show parameter DB_BLOCK_SIZE;
 name, value, display_value, description
 name = lower('DB_BLOCK_SIZE');

Any Oracle database that contains important data should be running in ARCHIVELOG mode. Running in Archive log mode enables you to take hot backups and perform point-in-time recovery.
