While we migrate a relatively big size database from Oracle to Microsoft SQL Server, all the small tables are migrated successfully without any issues. But the following issues occur from big tables migration.
- “SSMAforOracle.exe” process consumes high memory, so the server got 99% memory utilization consistently.
- For big tables with more than 10 million records, they are always partially migrated.
- After big tables migration failure, we can see sometime the follow message in the migration log.
“Execution Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.”
DataMigration Error. From : "SCHEMANAME"."TABLENAME" To : [DBNAME].[SCHEMANAME].[TABLENAME] Execution Timeout [Error: Datamigrator] [9812/41] [2020-11-01 21:21:34]: Exception: Execution Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.
It is not really a timeout issue. Even after increasing the “Data Migration Timeout” from default 5 mins to maximum 1440 mins( 24 hrs), the migration of big tables still fails.
