Hi, I improved the performance of export/load operation by using pipes. Since a single ixf or del file is created for a regular export, it was straight forward and I was able to read from compressed file. When LOBs are used, we do not know how many lobfiles will be created (as it increases depending on data). How do I handle this situation if I want to use pipes instead of regular files?

Also, would appreciate any tips to speed up export process.
Thanks ...
