Hi all,

I would like to know what should be taken into account when we want to clone one database to another already existing database.

1. When to choose exp/imp
2. When to copy data files and recreate control file

Thanks for your help.

In this case it is not cloning, it is importing/embedding.
You then have 3 choices:
1/ standard export/import (or datapump)
2/ transportable tablespaces

Hi,

To have a good performance, instead of doing export from database A and import on database B.

Will you recommend using a materialized view on database B and a materialized view log on database A.

I would to store only new lines on the materialized view log on database A and refresh materialized view on database B using dblink.

Thanks.

It depends on your need and environment.
Real time or deferred copy? What is the allowed gap? Can you stop activity on source table or not? What is the size of the table? What is the activity on it? What is the speed of your network? Is there any network between the 2?...

Regards
Michel

Hi Michel,

The table has more than 20G. Since we will refresh only new lines one time/day (not real time). It will surely be faster than exporting and importing the all table.

We have additional 4Go/year.

Thanks.

4G/year means ~10M each day, if the network is not bad then mview seems to be the best choice maybe with a refresh each hour or half hour to spread the io and network traffic all over the day.

Again, an arbitrary post with too little information.

Database Version? Standard or Enterprise ?

For 10g(or higher) Enterprise, I would recommend streams. Pretty straight forward for a single table, or even a singly schema.

Of course, there are plenty of different options....

(sadly I was informed Oracle will be ending all R & D efforts as it relates to Streams, as they are completing their acquisition of GoldenGate.)

9i. It is in the title.
This is why I didn't mention Streams.

Sorry - bad habbit of reading the subject without the title.


But how sad is it, Oracle 9i ?

Isn't that unsupported now? I know, I know. Even in my diamond mine, we have unsupported databases. Couple 7.3's, a few 8.0's, about a dozen 8i's...

It's so so sad. Will be deploying 11gR2's this month and next. 6 versions of Oracle, on over a dozen platforms, throw in a few RAC Clusters with a bit of streams.

You'd think management does this cr*p just to kill the DBA's. (Only 4 of us for 130+ db's, and tools...well there's putty....)

They hate us

How lucky you are! We have (at this very moment but this will change along the day) 1575 Oracle databases from 7.1 (on VMS) to 11.2.

VMS was the very best platform to run Oracle on.

GS1280's ROCK !!!

My current environment, we have 7.1's, 7.3's and 8i's on vms. No 1280s though.

Did several years as a VMS SysAdmin too. The most stable hardware I have ever been near. Too bad they killed it.
