    Unanswered: Export / Import in Oracle


    I am having Oracle 7.3.4 database which is 45GB and running in Sun enterprise 3000 , 2 GB RAM. Can anyone tell me with your experience ...

    1. How much time the import of database will take ?

    2. I am planning to export the table to oracle 9i database in another server of same configuration. How long the export would take.

    thanks for you help

    the export is the fastest if you run export with direct=y recordlength=65000

    but import will possibly last 45 min for every GB. And then it is best
    to import with indexes=n
    and make the redologs as large as you can to avoid many log switches.
    after the job has finished loading the rows and primary indexes you can submit a job to build the indexes in parallel and no logging - therefore it necessary to manipulate the generated file for the indexes with an sed command to replace the string logging with nologging parallel

    hope this helps

    Just so you know: I have done exports on an Oracle 7.3.4/SCO-Unix V5 system and these exports were dramatically slower with the "direct=y" option. With "direct=n" speed was about 15 min./GB. I did not pursue this any further at the time.
