External Table Load Very Slow

Posted on 2014-09-15

Dear Experts,

We are using External Tables to load CSV files to Oracle Database  (Oracle 11gR2) on Windows 2008 R2. However, while average load time was 15-20 seconds previously, nowadays it takes even up to 15-20 minutes. The average size of CSV files did not change.

What can be the problem or what can I do to trace the problem?

What do you mean with "previously"?! Did something change in between?! New hardware, other OS etc...?!
To track the mentioned latency, you could do a session specific trace for that loading and tkprof the results afterwards. Then you might see where this process needs to be tuned or bug-fixed...

check the wait events while the load is running.  Ideally you could compare these to activity of old runs that were successful.
