Well there are many answers and my experiences have shown that it always depends on the use-cases.
What you can do to make inserts faster:
1) Bulking (if you want to make it fast, do bulking!) which reduces commits and commit time
2) Enough ITL on the block (INITRANS)
3) Depending on the size of a row: Blocksize, PCTFREE
4) No Indexing
5) No integrity checks (Foreign keys, not null constraints)
6) Buffer cache (if it's to small you'll early end up with I/O)
And the list goes on....
APPEND hint is also very useful on inserts because it's using DIRECT-PATH inserts which will append the data simply on the table. But be aware the unused space by the table will then not be filled up!
Gerald made an excellent exposition and I totally agree withg him.
From my personal experience I would recommend partitioning. But my experience is in the telecom world were we could easily make 20/30 million inserts per hour and some of these tables were partitioned by (day,hour) to improve insert speed, we had indexes and we could not use /*+append*/ because of backup restrictions.
If you need real insight or your specific case, may be you could post your full scenario.
Hi, do you have a column in the table to store the radius server id (i.ex server1, server2, ...)?
If so, is it indexed? Is it partitioned?
maybe you could consider partitioning the table according to the server. For instance
if table looks like this
c1, c2, radius_server_id, ...
You could use range or list partition by radious_server and the on each server, when you issue the insert statement you could specify the corresponding server id.
If your planning to rebuilt table and add partitions, i don't think hash would do the trick on this one...
I stand by adding a range or list partition using a column server_id and forcing each server to specify its own partition while doing the insert.
insert into abc partition (s2_server) values(1,2,'s2') ;

My fondness for database development is flaring up again. Gladly I would like to share the announcement of my upcoming book "Advanced Oracle PL/SQL Developer's Guide - Second Edition" by Packt Publishing. The area of the focus is same i.e. Oracle PL/SQL but this version is largely revamped to whisk with Oracle Database 12c features and applications. While the first edition will always remain close to my heart, the second edition is a sheer investment of my experience attained so…
