Default: 500
Range: 100–10000 SQL insert statements before a commit
Related command-line option: -s

In most cases you do not need to use this parameter. This parameter is used only when you enter the -s option at the command line or set the bit DSOPT_No_Loader (2) in the ds_options column of corresponding row in the DATASETS table.

The max_clone_count parameter applies to the dbutility process and clone commands for cloning only, not updates, when the command-line option ‑s is set. It defines the maximum number of SQL insert statements that dbutility can execute before a commit is required.

The value of this parameter has no effect on the commit frequency during the processing of updates, which is controlled by DBEngine.
