Vutil -unload limits


Vutil –unload encounters a 2 gigabyte limit


The Vutil –unload process on a Vision index file executes until the output file hits approximately 2 GB. As an example, here is the output when this occurs:

# ls -l CFSDATA*

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root system 1436363264 Dec 23 10:16 CFSDATA

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root system 826272256 Dec 23 10:16 CFSDATA.vix


# vutil -unload CFSDATA unCFS

Record size = 2000

Unloading CFSDATA...

unCFS: write error


# ls -l unCFS

-rw-r--r-- 1 root system 2147483647 Dec 23 10:15 unCFS



On operating systems that support line sequential files greater than 2 GB, setting “USE_LARGE_FILE_API” to “1” resolves the issue. Note that this must be set in the environment, since Vutil does not use a configuration file.
