Oracle 8 Tips  

by Burleson Consulting

The Data Warehouse Development Life Cycle

Distributed Oracle Data Warehouses


Here, you can see that MY_REPLICATED_TABLE is refreshed each morning at 3:00 AM, and the read-only name SNAP$_MY_REPLICATED_TABLE has been replaced with the synonym MY_REPLICATED_TABLE. Following is an example of the snapshot log syntax that needs to be run on the master database:

STORAGE (initial 20k next 20k);

The dbms_snapshot.refresh_all procedure can be run at any time on the DESTINATION data warehouse to refresh the snapshot tables. To force a refresh of an individual table, execute the following:

EXECUTE dbms_snapshot.refresh('office','f');

Note: Any refresh errors are written to the alert.log file.

The snapshot log is a table that resides in the same database as the master table, which can be seen in the Remote DBA_tables view as a table with the name MLOG$_tablename. In our example, the snapshot log would be called MLOG$_CUSTOMER.
