Experiencing slower performance during import, and do not see import processes running on second RAC node as expected, even though data pump parameters are configured to allow for parallelism on cluster.


parfile contains parameters that would allow for parallelism to be used across RAC.


The import has previously run at faster throughput, but now the import is running at slower speed.
