RE: Migrating 3TB size database from HP to AIX, also 9i to 10g.



This script start 4 simultaneous export-import.
The export writes to pipe and then rsh´d to the other server.
Import read the export´s flow from other pipe.

There are no intermediate write between export and import.

##!/bin/bash -x
#

for tb in `cat tablas.txt`
do

echo "Lanzo import en LOCAL: " $tb
echo mkfifo /oracle10/tmp/$tb.pipeimp
echo imp file=/tmp/$tb.pipeimp log=/tmp/imp_$tb.log parfile=/tmp/imp.par


echo "Lanzo export en REMOTOR: " $tb
#echo mkfifo /tmp/$tb.pipeexp
#echo exp file=/tmp/$tb.pipeexp log=/tmp/exp_$tb.log tables=DWP.$tb
parfile=/tmp/exp.par & remsh hpdwprod  'cat > /tmp/$tb.pipeimp' <
/tmp/$tb.pipeimp

rsh -l oracle10 nodo1 ". /oracle10/.bash_profile ; mkfifo
/oracle10/tmp/$tb.pipeexp ; exp br/br tables=$tb
file=/oracle10/tmp/$tb.pipeexp owner=br & rsh -l oracle10 nodo2  'cat >
/oracle10/tmp/$tb.pipeimp' < /oracle10/tmp/$tb.pipeexp" &

echo -----------------------------------------------------

echo "Compruebo numero de imports lanzados"
ps aux |grep imp |grep -v grep  > /tmp/import.txt
imports=`wc -l /tmp/import.txt |awk '{print $1}'`
echo "numero de import ejecutandose: " $imports

#Si hay mas de 4 imports espero
while  [ $imports -ge 4 ];
do
  echo imports $imports mayor que 4 .... duermo
  sleep 3
  ps aux |grep imp |grep -v grep  > /tmp/import.txt
  imports=`wc -l /tmp/import.txt |awk '{print $1}'`
  echo $imports
done

done


----------------
imp.par:
USERID=system/passwd
statistics=none
fromuser=RESTORES
touser=RESTORES
buffer=50000000
constraints=n
grants=n
indexes=n
ignore=Y
----------------
exp.par:
USERID=system/passwd
direct=y
buffer=50000000
recordlength=65535
indexes=n
constraints=n
statistics=none
grants=n


We tried this method but the bottleneck is the redolog writing.
There are a hidden parameter that disable overal logging but isn´t
recomended, of course.

Hope this help you.

greetings.
