    Hi Mark,
    You can do the following:
    1. Increase memory ( default 1024) to 16382 or higher
    2. Check disable constraints/triggers and drop indexes ( make sure to have permissions)

    also ensure
    1. Logging is turned off on the tables.
    2. Enough undo space in DB ( ~5Gb)

    Thanks Hims! Also, as a good to know. Delphix doesn't support unmasking databases right?

    Hi Mark,
    You are welcome.
    Data masking in principle is a one-way activity which is the bedrock of its security. However if you need to look at original production data ( assuming you have the entitlements), using Delphix you can provision a copy of production data in minutes irrespective of its size.

    For some use cases Delphix does provides a 'Tokenziation' feature where the token can be 'Re-identified'.

    Yes, All algorithms are irreversible with exception of tokenization which can be re-identified.
