SLEEP

Within an OLAP DML program, the SLEEP command suspends the program execution for at least the specified number of seconds.

Note:

SLEEP is rarely used in Oracle OLAP programs, because there is seldom a need to suspend program execution.

Syntax

SLEEP n

Parameters

n

A numeric expression that specifies the number of seconds for Oracle OLAP to "sleep." Program execution is suspended for at least this number of seconds.

Examples

Example 10-125 Suspending Program Execution

In a program, suppose you execute a statement that might take 10 seconds to complete. You can follow that statement with this SLEEP statement, which suspends program execution for 10 seconds.
