Export Of External Tables Defined Without Access Parameters Creates a Huge Dump File
Last updated on NOVEMBER 28, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 10.1.0.2 to 10.2.0.4
This problem can occur on any platform.
sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
create or replace directory bdump_dir as 'e:\oracle\admin\wipdba\bdump';
grant read, write on directory bdump_dir to test;
create table alert_log
default directory bdump_dir
reject limit unlimited;
Then you started a full database export and observed that the dump file size increased extremely. You tried with ROWS=N and the dump file is huge, too.
