datapump hidden parameter

Discovered a hidden (pretty pointless) parameter today.

silent=banner

This hides the version information fro the logfile - not sure what practical use this really has other than saving a few bytes but it's there....


As you can see in the second run the banner has now magically gone....

  1. Seems that there are same options as in SQL*Loader. You can use silent=all and do not get any output on the console. Useful if you spawning several EXPDP sessions in the background.
    oracle@dbsrv1p6:/home/oracle $ expdp testuser directory=data_pump_dir dumpfile=testuser.dmp silent=all
