loadercli timeout

I'm experimenting sometimes a loadercli timeout during export of a database user

The command issued is

/ict/app/sdb/programs/bin/loadercli -d $DB -u $DB_USER,$DB_PASSWD -E 0 -b $SQL_FILE -cs ';'

Sometimes it works

Other times it gives this output

Loader protocol: '/root/.sdb/loader/log/loader.prt'

User DBA connected to database PSFPROD on local host.

USE USER finecowl finecowl

<b>Error during execution



Failure in db communication (request): 3 = connection broken by TIMEOUT.</b>

Any workaround or hint on this timeout?

The db is running normally and it was always online in the meantime

I run through the options and don't see nothing to modify the timeout

Maxdb is version

Loader 7.5.0 Build 044-123-149-413

Thanks in advance

    Hi Stefano,

    the parameter to look for is SESSION_TIMEOUT. The default for this parameter is 900 s.

    Could you please check the knldiag file for entries for the time the problem occurs. The error reported by the Loader points out that actually the kernel stopped communicating with the Loader because of a timeout. Any hints here would be interesting.

    Furthermore I would like to encourage you to use the newest available Loader. The version you use is rather ancient :-). As the Loader is downwards compatible there should be no problems in using a newer version with the Database version you use.

    Best regards,
