This tool helps the DBA detect when the size limit for a storage area is approaching a physical (addressing) limit. The analysis done by the tool provides a conservative view of storage area usage, i.e. there is a built-in safety margin in the reporting. The margin comes from space internal to a storage area that is actually available for the case of deleted and reused record-id's.
