  The table had 500 mill rows and I was deleting 100 mill (20%) on a WHERE on a non-PI column date column. There are no SIs, and there were no blocking during the runs. I am using V2R4.1  


  What could explain the above results?  



Hi,

Insert select has to move the 80% of the rows which are remaining to a new table.

Multiload delete only needs to delete 20% of the rows.

Deleting 100 million rows is faster than writing 400 million rows.
