You can import database objects that are enabled for the IM column store using the TRANSFORM=INMEMORY:y option of the ‘impdp’ command. With this option, Data Pump keeps the IM column store clause for all objects that have one. When the TRANSFORM=INMEMORY:n option is specified, Data Pump drops the IM column store clause from all objects that have one.

You can also use the TRANSFORM=INMEMORY_CLAUSE:string option to override the IM column store clause for a database object in the dump file during import. For example, you can use this option to change the IM column store compression for a database object being imported.



Note the \ characters are necessary to “escape” the double quotes so they are not stripped by the OS.



Oracle Database In-Memory Option (DBIM) Basics and Interaction with Data Warehousing Features (Doc ID 1903683.1)

Database In-Memory now has a new Base Level feature. This allows the use of Database In-Memory with up to a 16GB column store without triggering any license tracking. This feature allows you to use Database In-Memory without having to license the option. The column store is limited to 16GB when using the Base Level. This helps to show the value of Database In-Memory without having to worry about licensing issues.
Within an individual PDB, you can limit access to the shared In-Memory Area by setting INMEMORY_SIZE to a different value. For example, in a CDB with 100 PDBs, you could set INMEMORY_SIZE to 16G at the CDB level and then set INMEMORY_SIZE to 10G in one PDB, to 6G in a second PDB, and to 0 in the remaining PDBs.
It is the Oracle21c feature backported to Oracle19c 19.8 RU.
