WORKERS

Syntax:

WORKERS number

where number is a number from 1 to 10. The default is 1.

The WORKERS parameter enables Snapshot to process one or more “Worker” stacks to perform the data set extracts during a clone. This may increase the speed of the cloning process. When there is more than one Worker running, Snapshot receives records interspersed from multiple data sets.

Note that the actual number of Workers running is the smallest of the following values:

  • Snapshot Workers limit
  • DBEngine Workers limit
  • Number of data sets to extract
