Be aware that if you use such feature, Oracle will log this, and will fail in an license auditing.

even if you just select some *_HIST views, Oracle will going to log this access into DBA_FEATURE_USAGE_STATISTICS and eventually you will have to pay.

Within DBA_FEATURE_USAGE_STATISTICS have informations regarding , how many times you used that feature, when was the last time.

    • Hi Venkata, the DBA_FEATURE_USAGE_STATISTICS is completly free of charge. The views that you should be concern usually have HIST as part of the name.
