Performance Tuning – Identifying and Removing Target Bottleneck


Identifying the Target Bottleneck:

The best way to check if there is a target bottleneck is to configure the session such that the data is loaded into a flatfile rather than any table (database).If the session performance improve then we do have a target bottleneck.

Optimizing the Target:

1. Drop Indexes and key constraints. We can Drop & rebuild the indexes in the pre and the post session.

2. Increase the check points intervals.

3. Use External loading (SQL*Loader bulk loads to target files)

4. Increase database network packet size (at oracle level we do so in the tnsnames.ora or listner.ora and in the informatica level we need to increase it inthe informatica server configuration and also in the database server network memory).

5. Improve oracle target database.

More About PIVOT Queries

this helps me a lot! thanks!

This one explores a few more complex ways to use pivot queries. We’ll look at:

• Multiple Pivot Columns
• Multiple Aggregate Functions

within the same SQL statement and we’ll see a few errors which commonly arise when building more complex pivot queries like these. Finally, we’ll consider: why would one have a need to UNPIVOT?

Multiple Pivot Columns

Suppose you want to use multiple columns in the pivot argument. In this case you must list the paired column values (or triads — but they multiply quickly) you are interested in gathering, and provide for each a display name. Let’s say we are refining our original object counting query from the earlier post to inspect objects created within the past…
