RE: Slow Export

It was the trace in the SQLNET.ORA.  The trace file had gotten to be over 2G.
I remove the commands.  Turned off the trace.  The exports ran in 40 minutes 
instead of 9 hours!

Thanks for your help!

Ron

Interesting.  SQL*Net trace level 16 dumps a LOT of stuff to disk.

It's possible that the combination of the SQL*Net trace writes and the exp 
writes are killing your I/O.  When the export runs remotely, the SQL*Net trace 
writes still happen, but the export writes are on another host.....

It's worth commenting that stuff out of youe sqlnet.ora.  Also, if this is at 
all a busy database, you may want to clean out 
/oracle_rdbms/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/network/trace which probably has lots of 
useless *.trc files in it.

I'd comment those lines from sqlnet.ora and try re-running the exp.

Found this in the SQLNET.ORA file.  Added to try to diagnose another problem. 
About the time the exports started running slow.

TRACE_LEVEL_CLIENT=16 
TRACE_DIRECTORY_CLIENT=/oracle_rdbms/app/oracle/product/8.1.7/network/trace
TRACE_TIMESTAMP_CLIENT = ON 

TNSPING works well.

Ron,
Is there any recent change to your local  tnsnames.ora file. May be any 
bracket is missing or format error. How about your tnsping to that database 
work from local server?

Regards
Rafiq

No, I found I can run truss.  Just don't know how since we usually can't run 
those type utilities.
The only waits are SQL*NET waits, to and from the client.  About 350 but no 
time associated with the wait.
The export is local.  If done remotely the export runs much faster, back to 
normal times.

Thanks!
Ron

        Hmm....so, they explicitly deperm access to the truss binary?  On most 
Sun 
servers, it's in /usr/bin, and you should not need root permission to truss 
an oracle owned process.  If you can login as the user who started the 
database (presumably oracle), that should be good enough to do the trace.  
Unless they really do explicitly deperm the binary.  If that's true, I'd 
argue that's a battle you need to fight, in order to do you job well, you 
need access to O/S level tools like truss.  (I know, I know, easier said 
than done....;-))

        As for the V$SESSION_WAIT output, what do you mean by "looks low"?  Are 
you 
seeing waits?  What are they?

        Also, regarding Tanel's last question, are you exporting locally, or 
over 
the network?

        I had to restart the export.  Ran 8.5 hours this time.
        V$Session_Wait looks low right now.
        I have never used the Truss command.  Unix admins don't give us access.

                Are you exporting over network or locally in the server?

                V$SESSION_EVENT, V$SESSION_WAIT and truss -c should sufficient 
to reveal 
the cause..

                        There are several exports in different databases, 
exporting various size 
objects.  The thing is, this started about the middle of December.
                        Before that, everything was fine.
