Export , Import & Load utility in DB2 : Part – 3
LOAD Operation :: The LOAD utility write pages of data directly to the database instead of using SQL statements & does not record changes in any log files. This means that LOAD operation is faster than IMPORT transaction. However if LOAD transaction failes , the data cant be reloaded by performing a roll- forward recovery operation. To compensate for this , we have to create a backup copy of all data that is loaded so that it can be reloaded if necessary.
