Oracle Data Pump: Interactive Mode – Attach/Detach

I had a customer who was importing a long running Data Pump import job. The client needed to go home and still have a way to monitor the import job.

Starting with Oracle 10g Data Pump there is a useful feature in situations in which you start a job at one location and need to check on it at a later time from a different location
