Data dump options about PARALLEL,logTime & exclude


PARALLEL is not user for Object Struct creation , but effect with Data.


  • Set the degree of parallelism to two times the number of CPUs, then tune from there.
  • For Data Pump Export, the PARALLEL parameter value should be less than or equal to the number of dump files.
  • For Data Pump Import, the PARALLEL parameter value should not be much larger than the number of files in the dump file set.

logTime Option

One new parameter introduced in Oracle 12c data pump which is called logtime. This is a command-line parameter which will display the messages or status in log with timestamp (time stamped format). This parameter helps the DBA to identify the time taken for each granule of export job.

There are 4 possible options available for logtime parameter.

  • NONE – By default value and it will not show any timestamp
  • STATUS – Will display the timestamp for status messages
  • LOGTIME – Will display timestamp for log file messages
  • ALL – will display timestamp for both status

exclude Option

Enables you to filter the metadata that is exported by specifying objects and object types that you want excluded from the import/export operation.
