Poor Performance of Expdp Against a Particular Table
Last updated on JANUARY 13, 2014
Applies to:Oracle Database - Standard Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Expdp is running very slowly against a particular table. A 10046 trace of the expdp shows that the waits are for 'db file sequential read' against the table itself, reading one block at a time, even though the internally defined parameter 'db_file_multiblock_read_count' is set to 128.
Conventional export is also slow.
An explain plan of expdp shows a full table scan is being performed.
Trying different options for the ACCESS_METHOD parameter does not make any difference.
