For exports (BTEQ, ODBC, etc), ensure the response buffer is maximum e.g. 64000. I don't know the exact max number. Each interface has
a different way of specifying that. For example, I believe BTEQ defaults to 8K which would require 8 times as many request/response round
trips as 64K.
Your FastExport result of '1 session is best' indicates fundamental incorrect operation of FastExport--it was created to speed up the
return phase via multiple sessions (via interleaved non blocking operations returning one spool). An incident should be opened. Increasing
sessions should increase the return phase throughput dramatically (with diminishing returns) assuming no other limiting factors such as the
LAN, client cpu, output media, etc.
