Came across a situation I’ve never experienced importing data into Oracle.

Was given a data pump file that has its own tablespace (TS) defined. I defined the TS with this info for it I was given: size 2G autoextend on maxsize 8G uniform size 1G.
They stated the current TS size is only 4GBs so more than enough space in new TS. However on import the datafile grows and blows out 8GB size and goes into a Resumable state on extents being exceeded.
So I stopped the import and cleared TS and reset the TS adding another datafile and tried import again…this time both files bloated to limit and import again stopped to a resumable state.
I then added 2 more datafiles and repeated with same results of exceeding TS limit. I've also checked the TEMP TS and plenty of space there too.

What would be causing this issue not being able to import?

Hi RJ, and welcome to the forum!

You have two issues here. The first is allowing Oracle to extend enough to accept your load.

The second issue is setting PCTFREE to pack the data as tightly as possible.

For the tablespace, allocate it with "maxextents unlimited" and auto extend on:


As for row packing, first see if PCTFREE is set for you table Parms:


Next, determine avg_row_len and set the storage parms to pack in the data without too much free space:


Good luck!

Hope this helps . . .
