I've got a table I'm trying to use exp on, and it's got a number of clob fields. This table is SUPER SLOW to extract (other tables are 10x as large and finish 10x quicker).

All I can come up with is that these clob fields are slowing it down, as I'd read exp had performance issues with some field types.

I'm using Oracle on the server, and see "Export: Release" when I 'exp help=yes' in Windows XP.

Is there a patch I can apply, or something I can do differently to get better performance out of this?
