Hi All,

I have been reading about the datapump and came to know about "compression"

As per doc it will compress all the metadata before writing it out to the
dump file. which is default.

But I could not understand the benefit of this if this is just for metadata
not the real data because metadata's size is just negligible as compare
to whole database.

Could you identify any other case where it is useful.

Happy New Year 2008 !!
