RDBPROD: Fast Update on Large Tables with Frequent COMMITs (Doc ID 564575.1)

Last updated on APRIL 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.2.2 and later
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha


A request is made to update each column of a large table. Using just one UPDATE over all rows may lead to a very big, long running transaction. It might be better to perform frequent commits, but we wish to avoid the overhead of manually managing the subsets of the rows.
