R3load ttaking too much time when table REPOSRC is loaded


I am installing the SAP ECC 6.0 SR2 on SUN Solaris 10 on DB2 V9.1. 17 jobs of the 19 have been completed in ABAP Import phase but it is taking too much time while doing this SAPSSEXC. It is running aroung 10 hours. There is no error is giving. So I have canceled the SAP Installation. After that I have started through manual OS command

/sapmnt/<SID>/exe/R3load -dbcodepage 4102 -i /<instdir>/SAPSSEXC.cmd -l /<instdir>/SAPSSEXC.log -stop_on_error -merge_bck

It is also running around 9 hours. I do not why it is happening and when it will be completed.

Can you help me what will check for doing this job fast or can help me how to resolve this issue?

I have checked these SAP notes 454368 and 455195

If i change any DB2 parameter, I have to restart the DB2 Database. What will I do? I can not understand what to do now.

Please help me ASAP.

    running the R3load import step manually you might try to add the option

    -loadprocedure fast LOAD

    Pay attention to write the LOAD in capital letters!

    This will invoke the LOAD-API whenever possible.

    This should save some time on "normal" tables without LOB-columns.

    For your table REPOSRC that has a BLOB column the LOAD-API will not be taken.

    So I am sorry this will not work for your special case.

    (Thanks for the hint to Frank-Martin Haas)

    Kind regards

    I had a similar issue. What I was seeing was a very high cpu load of db2agent (<SID>). I switched on STMM (using Note 899322 - DB6: DB2 9.1 Standard Parameter Settings), restarted the database and the loading of that table was finished in under an hour.
