DataPump Metrics=Y Can Sometimes Incorrectly Show Negative Elapsed Time
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 05, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The METRICS=Y parameter for DataPump export and import will generate additional log information showing the elapsed time required to export or import object types or individual tables in the DataPump job.
In some cases the elapsed time can be displayed as a negative number as shown below:
24-AUG-17 19:38:09.925: . . exported "TESTUSER"."TABLE2" 189.5 MB 174462 rows in 108 seconds
25-AUG-17 03:07:01.218: . . exported "TESTUSER"."TABLE3" 253.2 GB 543008 rows in -59468 seconds
25-AUG-17 06:38:21.841: . . exported "TESTUSER"."TABLE4" 253.3 GB 498805 rows in 12680 seconds
25-AUG-17 06:38:26.864: . . exported "TESTUSER"."TABLE5" 154.7 MB 1734347 rows in 5 seconds
Why would a table in the export logfile show a negative elapsed time value?
