Datapump compression parameter

Here I just like to show How compression datapump parameter working in Oracle 11g R2 ( see Below Screenshot How  size vary from others.)

Default: METADATA_ONLY

Purpose

Specifies which data to compress before writing to the dump file set

Syntax and Description

COMPRESSION={ALL | DATA_ONLY | METADATA_ONLY | NONE}
  • ALL enables compression for the entire export operation. The ALL option requires that the Oracle Advanced Compression option be enabled.
  • DATA_ONLY results in all data being written to the dump file in compressed format. The DATA_ONLY option requires that the Oracle Advanced Compression option be enabled.
  • METADATA_ONLY results in all metadata being written to the dump file in compressed format. This is the default.
  • NONE disables compression for the entire export operation.
Restrictions
  • To make full use of all these compression options, the COMPATIBLE initialization parameter must be set to at least 11.0.0.
  • The METADATA_ONLY option can be used even if the COMPATIBLE initialization parameter is set to 10.2.
  • Compression of data (using values ALL or DATA_ONLY) is valid only in the Enterprise Edition of Oracle Database 11g

For Example  , See Below Screenshot:

Compression =METADATA_ONLY


C:\Users\mazar>set oracle_sid=azardb

C:\Users\mazar>expdp scott/tiger@azardb dumpfile=compressmeta.dmp directory=data_pump_dir compression=metadata_only

    Export sizes are too small to make an accurate comparison – who has a DB whose export is like 200KB?
