I have a very interesting situation with Oracle export. We do a schema level export and it appears like it chooses conventional path on certain tables. I've checked the table and none of them have columns such as long, blob, clob etc. All of them have one of the following -- char, date, number, varchar2. What makes the export utility choose the conventional path even when direct path is specified? Below are the parameters we use to export data:
Any help/insights is greatly appreciated.
