SAND Compacted Table (SCT) Functionality

The SAND CDBMS Data Loader also supports SAND Compacted Table (SCT) files, which are storage archives containing highly compressed table data. In Parallel Loader mode, ndlm can be used to create an SCT File from source flat files, an ODBC data source, or a SAND database. As well, the data in an existing SCT File can be uncompressed and imported into a SAND database using ndlm.

These SCT-related topics can be found in the following parts of this document:
