0 - 7 of 7 tags for named pipes

I've got Fastload opening a named pipe, and I'm redirecting the output from a SQL*Plus script to the pipe in Windows. I assumed this would be far faster than allowing SQL*Plus to spool the result to a file locally, and fastload to import the flat file. Turns out it's not.

The Teradata Named Pipe Access Module (NPAM) provides an inter-process communication link between a writer process (such as FastExport) and a reader process (such as FastLoad).  The NPAM can also be used by Teradata Parallel Transporter (TPT) for data transfer activity.

This article discusses the Fallback file that is used by the NPAM.

Hello all:

Does anyone know why FastExport would not be able to find the named pipe below?  Any thoughts?  Thank you for your help!

The Named Pipes Access Module is installed (version 13.10.00.3).

The reader process will initialize the NPAM module via an Initialization string and this article details the various parameters that are initialized during this process.

Hi:

I left this post on the main Teradata website forum, but I thought this might be more appropriate and perhaps get a response. Thanks for taking a look. I just found this little nook inside of Teradata and I'm glad it exists.

I've created a Windows named pipe in a vb.net application using the System.IO.Pipes namespace. I'm creating a pipe, my process appears to be connecting to the pipe block and waiting to read and now I would just like to feed the pipe from Teradata.
