If you go "INSERT INTO..." check your wait events on the load. If you are doing it NOLOGGING, then you may have to set event 10359. We ran into this a few months ago. The writes to the controlfile to indicate it was an unrecoverable operation were taking about 30-40% of our total elapsed time. Once we set it, we gained all that time back.

According to metalink note 1058851.6, there is no real impact to setting it.
