RE: export error for duh Gurus

Muh database too has been suffering from occasional similar failures. Version Solaris 8. HAve been asked by Oracle to upgrade to the latest patchset, or to do conventional export, instead of direct. I decided to live with the occassional error. Usually, once a month.

It's highly sensitive production db...

I cannot implement new datapump right now..It's just the nature of the environment here. Yes the conventional exports with direct=y ... If it wakes me up again, I will try the direct=N

Note: a rerun of the export usually is successful! So I am thinking some resource contention or something.

Brian, do you get the error on conventional exports? And to be clear I take it you are using the traditional exp utility and not the new expdp utility that is the preferred utility with 10g to use for exports.

      Has anyone got ideas or run across this intermittent export error?

      Randomly getting this error in the export full.
      Metalink does not show anything related at our version so a tar

      . . exporting table                  CARTON_STATUS

* Check for block corruption shows no problems

I was in a assumption that when we set this parameter to a certain value, the usage of pga wont go beond this value. I have set pga as 3gb to one of my business critical database. Recently, I have found that max pga allocation was 4+ Gb. My boss askmed me, why the hell it takes more than what we have defined. I explained him saying that oracle might taken it from the OS to finish the necessary request. His immediately counter question was, then what is the use of setting pga_aggregate_target parameter? When oracle allocates and de-allocated the memory (pga) as per requirements. Is it expected behaviour that oracle takes sometime more that the value defined for pga? If so, what is the benift of setting value for pga?
