Oracle 10g 11g Data Pump EXPDP SAMPLE Parameter Option


SAMPLE parameter is used for exporting the sample number of rows. The parameter value mentioned will be considered as the sample percentage. Suppose if you don’t want the entire data from a table or schema and just need few numbers of records you can use this sample parameter of expdp utility. See the example below.

The table object_list has 24718848 and I am going to export only 10% of data for the table. In the dump file it has only 2472969 rows.

SQL> select count(*) from object_list;


expdp directory=EXPDIR dumpfile=object_list.dmp logfile=object_list.log tables=scott.object_list sample=10
