    Import using compressed file

    Hi,

    I've an export dump file which is compressed & it's of size 20Gb,
    the actual size of the file is 60GB,i don't have that much free space,

    so i want to import using this dump file in the form of compressed itself,Is it possible to do like this?

    Please if any one knows how to do this,please let me know.

    On UNIX something like this should work; substitute uncompress with gzip or whatever:

    Code:
    $ mknod /tmp/imp_pipe p 
    $ uncompress < export.dmp.Z > /tmp/imp_pipe & 
    $ imp file=/tmp/imp_pipe

    how about giving your .dmp a particular file size limit then specify different files spread out across your server?
    Oracle it's not just a database it's a lifestyle!
