Thanks Wayne. This a great idea to prevent user activity on the server. I’ll use it in the future.
But I’m looking for a way to prevent user activity on a database ((i.e. "database" being a "schema" or a "catalogue).

You could set max_connections = 0; then kill off any remaining connections. Do your data load and then set you max_connections back to what it was prior.
show variables like ‘max_connections’; (note this number)
set global max_connections = 0
This will leave 1 connection open for a superuser, I dont know what ID you use for that a lot of people use root.
Now import your data.
Once the import is done set global max_connections back to what it was.

Frequently, we import a production dump that contains only 1 or 2 databases into one of our QA instances that contains many more databases. (i.e. "database" being a "schema" or a "catalogue).
At the beginning of the import script, we first drop all objects in the QA database so that it will be a perfect match (object wise) to production.
Is there an easy way to lock the whole database for the duration of the import - so that no developers can update the database?
Obviously, I can revoke permissions, but I was wondering whether there is a better approach.
