How can I use Oracle Hints to speed up Inserts?

Dear Experts,

I have a PL/SQL procedure like below. I have implemented some session-wide Parameter Setting and Oracle Hints to speed up the operation. Do you think that I used the correct set of parameters and hints, or could you offer me better?

Notes:
1-TEMP_TABLE is a small table with approximately 100.000 rows compared to main table which has millions of rows.  2-TEMP_TABLE has no indexes while main table has a nonunique index with multiple fields including date field.
3-TEMP_TABLE is an ordinary table while the main table is partitioned daily.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DECLARE
.......
BEGIN
.......
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'ALTER SESSION SET db_file_multiblock_read_count=16';
INSERT /*+ APPEND PARALLEL NOLOGGING */ INTO MAIN_TABLE SELECT * FROM TEMP_TABLE;
COMMIT;
EXECUTE IMMEDIATE 'TRUNCATE TABLE TEMP_TABLE DROP STORAGE';
END;

if the temp table will have data for a particular day, you could insert directly to the partition that corresponds to that day.  it's not a hint, but could help.

your hints should help.   if you're going to force parallel, you might want to force a particular degree of parallelism otherwise it might vary from run to run.
