Using Oracle 8.1.7, Solaris 2.9 Trying to load a large amount of data using import. The schema needs to be the same and only the data reloaded. There are triggers, constraints (pk, fk, etc.) and pk indexes. I have been loading with pk's enabled and pk indexes (not fk and fk indexes) and the process is very slow. I have been running the import with statistics=n, indexes=n I am tempted to disable all constraints and drop pk indexes but I am afraid that I might have trouble creating the pk's properly. Can I used the indexfile option to create the pk's properly and will this make a significant difference in the import. What about after insert triggers? What is the best way to handle the after insert triggers? Any help would be appreciated. I have been spending a lot of time with this data load.
