Default: No timestamps are recorded


Specifies that messages displayed during export operations be timestamped. You can use the timestamps to figure out the elapsed time between different phases of a Data Pump operation. Such information can be helpful in diagnosing performance problems and estimating the timing of future similar operations.

Syntax and Description


The available options are defined as follows:

  • NONE--No timestamps on status or log file messages (same as default)

  • STATUS--Timestamps on status messages only

  • LOGFILE--Timestamps on log file messages only

  • ALL--Timestamps on both status and log file messages


  • None


The following example records timestamps for all status and log file messages that are displayed during the export operation:

> expdp hr DIRECTORY=dpump_dir1 DUMPFILE=expdat.dmp SCHEMAS=hr LOGTIME=ALL

The output looks similar to the following:
