|Subject:||Export and Import of Table with LOB Columns (like CLOB and BLOB) has Slow Performance|
|Modified Date :||19-NOV-2008||Status:||PUBLISHED|
Checked for relevance on 19-Nov-2008 The information in this article applies to: - Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 188.8.131.52 to 10.2.0.0 - Oracle Server - Personal Edition - Version: 184.108.40.206 to 10.2.0.0 - Oracle Server - Standard Edition - Version: 220.127.116.11 to 10.2.0.0 This problem can occur on any platform. SYMPTOMS -------- An export or import of a table with a Large Object (LOB) column, has a slower performance than an export or import of a table without LOB columns: -- create two tables: TESTTAB1 with a VARCHAR2 column, and TESTTAB2 with a -- CLOB column: connect / as sysdba create table scott.testtab1 (nr number, txt varchar2(2000)); create table scott.testtab2 (nr number, txt clob); -- populate both tables with the same 500,000 rows: declare x varchar2(50); begin for i in 1..500000 loop x := 'This is a line with the number: ' || i; insert into scott.testtab1 values(i,x); insert into scott.testtab2 values(i,x); commit; end loop; end; / -- export both tables: % exp system/manager file=exp_testtab1.dmp tables=scott.testtab1 direct=y % exp system/manager file=exp_testtab1a.dmp tables=scott.testtab1 % exp system/manager file=exp_testtab2.dmp tables=scott.testtab2 No CLOB No CLOB With CLOB DIRECT CONVENTIONAL column ------------ ------------ ------------ 18.104.22.168.0 0:13 0:20 7:49 22.214.171.124.0 0:14 0:18 7:37 126.96.36.199.0 0:12 0:15 7:03 10.1.0.2.0 0:16 0:31 7:15 Note: These performance results should not be considered as a benchmark of the performance between different Oracle versions, as the test databases were located on different machines with different hardware, and the databases had a different parameter configuration. The main objective of these results is to give an indication of the difference in the time that is needed to export a table with a LOB column, and a table without a LOB column. -- cleanup after running the test: connect / as sysdba drop table scott.testtab1; drop table scott.testtab2; CHANGES ------- You recently created tables that have Large Object (LOB) columns. CAUSE ----- This is expected behavior. The rows of a table with a LOB column are fetched one row at a time. Also note that rows in tables that contain objects and LOBs will be exported using conventional path, even if direct path was specified. Also during import, the rows of tables containing LOB columns are inserted individually. FIX --- Although the performance of the export cannot be improved directly, possible alternative solutions are: 1. If not required, do not use LOB columns. or: 2. Use Transport Tablespace export instead of full/user/table level export. or: 3. Upgrade to Oracle10g and use Export DataPump and Import DataPump.
