how abt using using ETL tools for this task?

Yes, Integration Server can be used to perform this task. As the other poster mentioned, with that data volume it may be more appropriate to use an ETL tool.

The key in doing this with Integration Server is to avoid loading the file completely into memory.

Use node iteration.
Use batch inserts.
The number of DB connections you mentioned is far too high. The processing won’t use that many connections.

You’ll want to consider transactional support and restart capability when the process stops in the middle for any reason.

thanks for reply reamon,it is very difficult to go for ETL tool at this moment, we have changed the design, am getting flat file…

deigned with below steps.

  1. taking the flatfile from share folder and ftp’ing the file to remote server box by FTP, remote server box has oracle scripts, reads the data insert in the export tables, webmethods need to have schedule service get the data from export table and insrt in to actual tables by custom sqls.

this is the solution.

Hi All,

Instead of export tables, directly we can use the actual target tables ? Any Suggestions

Thanks & Regards,
