Hello all
I am the happy heir of a server running Red Hat Enterprise 3 with Oracle 10.2g. This server is used for integration purposes. Every night, the prod db is exported to a dump file using expdp, and then we use impdp to import the schemas, one after the other. The export (5GB) is done in about 30 minutes, the import takes about 7-8 hours ! There are very few people using this server/this db, the machine is not overloaded at all. I tried to import on Sunday, when really nobody works on it, same behaviour. It would be nice if somebody could give me some advice where to start searching. Of course I already rebooted the server, no change.
