Subj:   Re: Fastexport and the 2Gb limit
From:   Paul Johnson

I came across a similar problem last year. We were exporting data from a Unix/Oracle platform to load to Teradata. The data in the large tables was physically partitioned into 2Gb chunks due to Unix file system limitations.

Writing directly to a Unix file resulted in truncation at the 2Gb limit. If standard output (i.e. to the terminal) was re-directed to a file (using ">") we successfully wrote files over 10Gb in size.

Although this was an Oracle problem, it was caused by unix file system constraints as per your problems. Newer versions of Unix do not have this limitation.
