When SQL*Loader begins execution, it creates a log file. The log file contains a detailed summary of the load.
Most of the log file entries will be records of successful SQL*Loader execution. However, errors can also cause log file entries. For example, errors found during parsing of the control file will appear in the log file.
This chapter describes the following log file entries:
The Header Section contains the following entries:
The Global Information Section contains the following entries:
If the data is in the control file, then the data file is shown as "*".
Control File: LOAD.CTL Data File: LOAD.DAT Bad File: LOAD.BAD Discard File: LOAD.DSC (Allow all discards) Number to load: ALL Number to skip: 0 Errors allowed: 50 Bind array: 64 rows, maximum of 65536 bytes Continuation: 1:1 = '*', in current physical record Path used: Conventional
The Table Information Section provides the following entries for each table loaded:
Table EMP, loaded from every logical record. Insert option in effect for this table: REPLACE Column Name Position Len Term Encl Datatype -------------------------------------- --- ---- ---- --------- EMPNO 1:4 4 CHARACTER ENAME 6:15 10 CHARACTER JOB 17:25 9 CHARACTER MGR 27:30 4 CHARACTER SAL 32:39 8 CHARACTER COMM 41:48 8 CHARACTER DEPTNO 50:51 2 CHARACTER Column EMPNO is NULL if EMPNO = BLANKS Column MGR is NULL if MGR = BLANKS Column SAL is NULL if SAL = BLANKS Column COMM is NULL if COMM = BLANKS Column DEPTNO is NULL if DEPTNO = BLANKS
The Datafile Information Section appears only for datafiles with data errors, and provides the following entries:
Record 2: Rejected - Error on table EMP. ORA-00001: unique constraint <name> violated Record 8: Rejected - Error on table EMP, column DEPTNO. ORA-01722: invalid number Record 3: Rejected - Error on table PROJ, column PROJNO. ORA-01722: invalid number
The Table Load Information Section provides the following entries for each table that was loaded:
The following indexes on table EMP were processed: Index EMPIX was left in Direct Load State due to ORA-01452: cannot CREATE UNIQUE INDEX; duplicate keys found Table EMP: 7 Rows successfully loaded. 2 Rows not loaded due to data errors.| 0 Rows not loaded because all WHEN clauses were failed. 0 Rows not loaded because all fields were null.
The Summary Statistics Section displays the following data:
Space allocated for bind array: 65336 bytes (64 rows) Space allocated for memory less bind array: 6470 bytes Total logical records skipped: 0 Total logical records read: 7 Total logical records rejected: 0 Total logical records discarded: 0 Run began on Mon Nov 26 10:46:53 1990 Run ended on Mon Nov 26 10:47:17 1990 Elapsed time was: 00:00:15.62 CPU time was: 00:00:07.76
Oracle8 statistics reporting to the log file differs between different load types:
For conventional loads and direct loads of a non-partitioned table, statistics reporting is unchanged from Oracle7.
If media recovery is not enabled, the load is not logged. That is, media recovery disabled overrides the request for a logged operation.
The command-line option,
silent=partitions, disables output of the per-partition statistics section to the log file for direct loads of a partitioned table.
In Oracle8, the option
silent=all includes the
partitions flag and suppresses the per-partition statistics.
