    dump file size

    Hi, my one schema dump size is 28 GB taken with utility exp.


    My question is:

    How to compress this size, as i don't have enough space on my disk to save this dump file.



    thanks,

    If the export dmp is already taken, use zip or compress option using OS commands. The other option would be to use parameter compress=y while taking an export.

    Thanks

    compress=y does not compress the export, read the manuals before giving bad advice

    Sorry for that bad advice. My apology. If you are on Unix environment you can use mknod pipe option.

    Like the below example.
    mknod exp.pipe x
    gzip < exp.pipe > test.exp.gz &
    exp userid=test/pwd file=exp.pipe

    An export generated dump file is a file at the Operating System level - that's why.
