Mark:

Oh...if only this were a conventional import!

This is an SAP system, and the export/import process uses
a SAP-written utility called "R3load". That I know of, there
are no settable parameters like the buffer parameter in an
Oracle import.

R3load writes to a flat file than is encoded and compressed
using SAP's proprietary programming. It works very well at
the compression angle. A 1.5TB database exported out to just
under 300GB of flat files.

The only tuning opportunities I have are on the database
server. I can send out the whole initSID.ora file, but
I thought that would be overkill for the first question.

Thanks for the support!

Mike

Mike, don't you think it would be helpful to show us the import =
parameters
in use?

If you are doing a conventional import then I would recommend you use a
large buffer=3D value. If any of the exported options are unnecessary =
for the
import such as grants then set the associated parameter off for the =
import:
grants=3Dn. If the target tables exist and ignore=3Dy is in use and =
some of
these tables are large drop the indexes so they do not have to be =
maintained
during the table load. Either build them after or let the import =
rebuild
them.

Subject: Import Question

Hey gang...any suggestions on how to speed up an import?

I am trying to import to a new SAP database server. Oracle 9.2.0.5
on HP-UX11i. There appears to be a lot of I/O activity, but
overall I get a feeling of the system dragging.

Some DB params are:

db_cache_size =3D3D 2147483648
log_buffer =3D3D 2097152
sort_area_retained_size =3D3D 0
sort_area_size =3D3D 5242880
undo_management =3D3D AUTO
db_writer_processes =3D3D 4
java_pool_size =3D3D 167772160

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike
