why fastexport utility takes this much time ?

Hi everyone,

I'm using fastexport utility with Oracle Data Integrator to generate a delimited file. The full process takes almost two minutes. When I'm looking at the log file, the two minutes are spent on the database connection :

Do you have any idea why the connection takes two minutes ? Has it ever happened to you before ? I know it can come from many reasons, but who knows ... if someone can help, thanks in advance !
