load from cursor


We have a process ( a stored proc) that exports data ( about 10
million records) from a huge table,t1 and loads it into another huge
table t2. The export runs for 3 hours everyday because of a very
complex sql...

My question is can we load from the table directly instead of exporting
the data and loading it from the falt file??

like using load from cursor??

does it have any disadvantages?? when we declare a cursor where is the
result stored?? can it overflow to the disk?? people here had lots of
performance issues using cursors in a Stored proceedure...

I do not know the answer to your question. However, a side note:
The export runs for 3 hours everyday because of a very complex sql...

I do not know if this applies, but using a temp TABLE, a splitting up
the actions of the complex SQL to multiple simple SQL statements may
speed things up a bit.

I just sped up a query that took aboutone minute and forty seconds to
under a second by using a temp table instead.

I don't see any disadvantages with using CURSOR except make sure only
after the LOAD only you issue a commit.
Regarding memory issues check other posts..

Hello, I've got some trouble trying to use a custom cursor. I'm trying to use ResourceManager to load the cursor from a whatever resX file I choose to have it in. It seems that the Cursor() constructor expects a Stream. What I get from Resourcemanager.GetObject() is an Object. Does anyone know how to convert the Object to a byte Stream so that I can load the cursor?

Hi, I am trying to load a custom cursor from my programs resources. I have successfully included the cursor resource, and I have confirmed that the name I am using is correct. Below is the code I am using to try and load the cursor - which always returns null. I have tried using LoadImage and LoadCursor with the same result.

Hi, I have some custom colour cursors which I have added to my c# project, and set them to be compiled as "Embedded Resource" It seems impossible to load a colour cursor using the standard Cursor class, so I have had to resort to loading it using the Win32 API, and creating the cursor with - new Cursor(HCURSOR) The code I am using is shown at the bottom of this post.

Hi, I am trying to declare and cursor and thn load from that cursor into another table. Since I have almost 4 million records, I cant do it without the cursor which reduces the time by almost 1/10th.

So whats the solution to this. I have to do it programatically...

Sorry for quoting an old post and probably I am reading out of context so my concern is unfounded. But I would appreciate if I can get someone or Serge to confirm. Also unlike the question asked in the post below, my question involves non-partitioned table loads. I want to know if, in general, loading from cursor is slower than loading from a file? I was thinking cursor would normally be faster, because of DB2's superior buffer/prefetch...

Hi All; I have a 2.5mm row table (very wide columns) on an UDB v8.2.3 (DPF - 6x10) AIX box. We were doing some performance testing to determine the pros and cons of delete/insert vs load from cursor operations in our ETL architecture (data warehouse extract/transform/load). We expected load from cursor to be substantially faster, but found that the delete/insert took 2 minutes and the load from cursor took 5 minutes.

UDB Version 8.2 FP7 (r"DB2 v8.1.1.128", "s061108", "U810098", and FixPak "14".) 64 bit running on AIX 5.3. We were getting the SQL0668 error below so we put the status sql into the script to see the table state right before the cursor/load ran. The table did not seem to be in a bad state. We switched this cursor/ load back to a regular export/load and the issue went away. We are doing several cursor loads on some 52Million row tables...
