Oracle Only Parameters Description


Whether to drop repository indexes. Specify:

  • Auto, to let the script determine whether to drop repository indexes based on the number of files to be processed.

Dropping repository indexes generally improves performance when a large number of files need to be processed. Dropped indexes are restored when processing is complete. Default is No.
