Hi,

I have designed an ETL job where I am using the Materialized View log as my source for delta records extraction by using the DML_Type ( I, U, D) and sequence Id to track the latest changes.

I am capturing all the change records in a table by using the sequence number in the MV Log . Once the capture is done for the instance , I am tracking the maximum sequence ID and then the next instance will start from there. This is how I am using the sequencenId .

My concern is:

I have seen the sequence Id is always increasing , if that is the case my design will work. id it possible that the sequence Id will get reset at any stage , if yes how

Also My MV log is getting larger , I want to purge/archive the MV log in a regular frequency based on old sequence Ids that are already loaded and not required . How I can purge the MV log from below certain sequence Ids ?

If you created you rmveiw log with SEQUENCE option then this sequence is retrieved from SYS.CDC_RSID_SEQ$ which is defined with increment by 1, order, no upper limit and no cycle option, so it can't decrease.

Thanks . Please let me know if I can purge/archive the data from the MV log on monthly basis by using the sequence Id ? Lets say I want to purge the old data from MV log below certain sequence id as the old records are already processed and not required any more .. pls suggest

You don't use any Oracle feature with this mview log then you can delete the rows as you want.
If you want to do it in a month basis maybe it is better to use the SNAPTIME$$ column than the SEQUENCE$$ but it is up to you.

I want to purge the MV log weekly basis or monthly basis and I have sequence Id column in the MV log. I am using the MV log as source for one of my ETL job.

I want to archive the MV log using the below query:

delete from Mlog$_EMP where sequence$$ < (max) sequence id that are already processed by ETL job. Is it ok if I use this type of direct delete statement using swquence$$ column in the where clause as I can track the records easily via this sequenceId which are no more required .

I have heard there is a oracle defined process to purge the MV log , procedure , if I ignore the same and use the above delete statement is it ok.
The MV log will be used by my ETL job only.

Same answer as in your previous topic; why do you think it should be different? And why do you start a new topic for the same or very closely related question?

Hi,

I am using MVLog table for one my ETL job to track the delta changes. The MV Log is having Sequence$$ which is a key field in my ETL job. The MVLog has become very big and I want to delete the old records from the MLOG below certan SEQUENCE$$ only ... but I heard that deleting below certain Sequence$$ will not help performance wise much since the blocks will be still there and the table size will not change much since we are deleting only records.

In that case my select from MVLog table will not improve since it will still access a very large table . Please share your thoughts or any option of purging below certain sequence$$ so that we can make the tabe size less

I can track the sql directly since it is maintained in ETL job dataflow. I saw there is no index on sequence$$ , so everytime the select query is ding a full table scan and even i delete the old records from MV Log table below certain sequence$$ and makes the MVLog smaller in terms of records , still the table size is huge and the select query does a full table scan , which I think does nt improve performance even after deleting records. Is there any way I can use the Purge procedure of MVLog using a sequence$$ parameter so that procedure will do the needful and it may help?

If you need it then create it.
