Re: Faster Dbimport

Posted By: Art Kagel

In Response To: Re: Faster Dbimport (GUSTAVO ECHENIQUE)

OK, so, if I remember correctly, you are using Informix v7.31, so some of
the more advanced features of myexport/myimport will not work. You will
not be able to use the -O (dependency ordering) or -E (export/import using
external tables) option or -A for myimport (use the HP Loader via the IBM
onpladm utility) for high speed exports and imports. These options depend
on Informix engine features that you just do not have in 7.31.

For faster exports you can use the -H D or -H E option to import and -D,
-C, or -S to export faster using Ravi Khrishna's myonpload utility (which
you can download from the IIUG Software Repository) to manage the HP Loader
and you can use -P parallel export/import to take advantage of all of the
CPU cycles and IO bandwidth available.

So, using these features, I would:

myexport mydatabase -C -o /path/for/.exp/directory -p -m -v


myimport mydatabase -H D -m -p -d default_dbspace

As far as how myimport connects to the database, it is just a shell
script. Connections to the database depend on which tools it is using to
accomplish the pieces of what it does. It uses some of the following
depending on options:

- myschema - an ESQL/C utility from my utils2_ak package which uses a

native Informix SQLI connection

- sqlunload - an ESQL/C utility from Jonathan Leffler's sqlcmd package

which uses a native Informix SQLI connection

- dbaccess - Informix native utility which also uses SQLI connections

- myonpload - an ESQL/C utility from Ravi Khrishna's myonpload

package which uses a native Informix SQLI connection

- HPLoader - Native Informix high speed load/unload utility. It uses

a low level library interface directly into the database

- sqlunload - an ESQL/C utility from Jonathan Leffler's sqlcmd

package which uses a native Informix SQLI connection

- sqlreload - an ESQL/C utility from Jonathan Leffler's sqlcmd

package which uses a native Informix SQLI connection

You should compile the utils2_ak, myonpload, and sqlcmd packages using the
latest Informix CSDK (v4.10.xC4) rather than your current v2.xx release of
the CSDK because it has been a long time (12 years) since that CSDK version
and v7.31 of the server engine were desupported and some code that is not
compatible with those older CSDK release may have slipped into the code.
For my packages, I do try to keep things backwards compatible, but I cannot
guarantee that the new code will compile with the older compilers.
Jonathan, I know, does not like to continue to support very old CSDK
releases, so his code may be ever more trouble. Myonpload is an old
package and has not been modified for a while, so it should be OK with old
or new CSDK versions.
