how to improve performance in oracle while inserting data selected from an unorganized table/

I have a table of 15 000 000 rows with data inserted i 12 times so it is an unorganized data.
I need to join that table with another one and insert it into the third table which has been truncated. It seems impossible to do it. It takes ages till it inserts about three millions and start complaining  something like 'cant extend segment for 8 in undo tablespace ' I tried to insert data commiting more often but it doesn't solve the problem. However, in the same tablespace in the same project I easily insert 10 millions in one go. I tried setting indexes but it didn't help. Please help :)

The 'tmp' table contains about 15 millions of rows and the 'sset_typ_attr ' is a small table with 10 thousands of rows

From your description, it's difficult to know exactly where the problem lies.  Do you know how the tables are being joined?  If so can you provide sample queries and a query plan.

Have you gathered statistics for all tables? What version of Oracle are you using?

Have you tried inserting into the "third" table with nologging to reduce the amount of redo being generated?

You can gather statistics on source and target schema before starting the insert process.

I'm using oracle oracle 11 and this is my query . I'll try to use nologging table



INSERT /*+ APPEND */ 

INTO txt_attr 

( 

   SELECT  /*+ parallel(ata, 4) parallel(tmp, 4)*/ 

   tmp.a_lyr_typ, 

   tmp.a_id, 

   tmp.a_seq_no, 

   tmp.at_cde, 

   ata.ata_col_no, 

   CASE 

                   WHEN ata.ata_str_flg = 'V' 

                           THEN ' ' 

                   ELSE ata.ata_ecf_fld 

   END, 

   ata.ata_desc, 

   tmp.attr_t_val AS a_exp_t_shrt, 

   CASE 

                   WHEN ata.ata_str_flg = 'V' 

                           THEN tmp.attr_t_val 

                   ELSE ' ' 

   END 

   FROM 

        typ_attr ata 

        INNER JOIN tmp_asst_ex_txt_val tmp ON 

            ( 

                      tmp.at_cde = ata.at_cde 

                      AND tmp.column_no = ata.ata_col_no 

                   ) 

   WHERE 

        ata.ata_actv_flg = 'A' 

        AND ata.ata_typ = 'T' 

) 

; 

COMMIT;

Putting the table into NOLOGGING mode helped a lot. seems  that it decrease significantly  the redo logging.
Thanks

That's good to hear. Is the insert now performing acceptably or are you still trying to tune it further?  If you need further help can you provide a query plan and some statistics?

Don't forget, because data has been inserted without logging, the txt_attr table will no longer be recoverable using archive logs so, if necessary, you will need to take a backup of the table.
