DataPump is slow with partitions.

You divided for example the export of a 900G partitioned table into four expdp dumps with partitions. The export of the whole table takes about 12 hours, the parallel run of the partition dumps about 5 hours. This saves 7 hours.

The import of the whole table running parallel 32 takes about 3 hours, but the parallel import of the four partition dumps never ends (canceled after 12 hours). Only one worker is seen in each import dump is running (31 are waiting).
