About defining a default value for a target column, either use the CAST clause of the pgloader's command, or define your target table yourself in the target database or in the BEFORE LOAD commands.

Hi Everyone, just wondering if anyone is still running into "SYB-MSDATETIME2" errors, I've been though the number of earlier github issues around this, running on the latest 3.6.1 and can see the usual recommendations are all applied there.
Max
@Bonn93
Well, actually the errors change between versions. On the latest from Master, getting SSL errors "OpenSSL_version_num" this is the same between Github src, and the docker images.

First happy holidays to all! I wanted to ask if anybody else has had an issue with keeping defaults values from the original DB? I've tried casting multiple times and it doesn't get built into the DDL in the destination DB? Has anybody else had issues keeping the default value in the DDL transferred to the destination DB?

hi, we want to load 'bytea' type table with hex string, however, instead of inserting 9116452417 we get 3931313645324137 . would u know? (we are migrating from oracle to postgresql and 'raw' data type was suggested to convert to 'bytea', should we define the bytea column differently?)
sasaraf
@sasaraf
we have tried to alter the database to have bytea_output set to 'hex' but we couldn't overcome the above without adding '\x<hex[string>', is there a way to add '\x' fixed into the pgloader script?

@dimitri I commented on #998 on Github, which possibly solves a few SSL errors I had, wondering your thoughts on adding the extra dev libs to the build?

Hello folks. Seems like I can't get pgloader to finish without hanging at the end of the process
I am copying a mysql DB to a local postgres DB, and everything seems to go great, but then all CPU and network activity stops and nothing seems to happen
I can't seem to get a clean run without some error like the following popping up, but it proceeds after that point so I assume it retries
debugger invoked on a PGLOADER.CONNECTION:DB-CONNECTION-ERROR in thread
Failed to connect to mysql at ... The condition Socket error in "connect": EINTR (Interrupted system call) occurred with errno: 0.

The current thread is not at the foreground,
for this thread to enter the debugger.

Hi,
Is it possible to install 3.6.1 version on ubuntu without compile ?
Christoph Berg
@df7cb
@amenophis: 3.6.1 builds on eoan only, you can install it from apt.postgresql.org (and on focal once we start supporting that)
Jérémy Leherpeur
@amenophis
@df7cb thanks
I compiled it with a patch for PG12 on each machine which needs pgloader ;)

Hi,
I tried to run this command

./pgloader/build/bin/pgloader -v \
--summmary ./summary.log \
file3.load

The issue is the summary.log file contains only summary for file3.
Did I miss something ?

I am converting legacy database (dBASE III) with encoding IBM (german) using :
AndreasLuka
@AndreasLuka

FROM 'daten.dbf' WITH ENCODING CP850
INTO postgresql:///staging
WITH truncate, create table

and it works well with only a small glitch. Beside the table 'public.daten', I also got a schema 'daten' with no dependencies at all.

I am trying to use a .load but every time i ran pgloader csv-writer.load I get an error saying: No such file or directory

@jamemackson
we are having an issue where we have some images stored in a database that we're moving from mssql into pg and the fields storing the image data seems to be truncating at 4096 - any ideas if there is an option we need to set to allow larger chunks of data to pass through?

Hello everyone and hello @dimitri
I have a question about pgloader. I want to import a table from MSSQL database to a PGSQL.
FROM {{DB_SOURCE}}
INTO {{DB_TARGET}}
INCLUDING ONLY TABLE NAMES LIKE '{{TABLE_NAME}}' IN SCHEMA 'dbo';
According to debug log, it create the table, read the source data but imported nothing
In the log i found
Finished processing WRITER for "dbo.csection" 31.060000s
writers-counts[dbo.csection] = 0
It may be difficult for you to help me with those details but if you have any clue it will be great !
It also may be a classical issue that i don't found any solution

Hello everyone,
I have a question about an issue am facing on. Am very new to pgloader, so any inputs will really help me.

1) Getting an error as " the octet sequence #(195) cannot be decoded." It is because of the string getting in the source file "Women’s, Girls’, and Infants’ Cut and Sew Apparel Manufacturing ". Is there a way to handle this in load file and load data, without replacing the character in source file ?

2) Also, the file has 1000 rows and this error happened on 425th row.. when the error happened it just stopped processing and did not continue. Is it possible to force ignore bad record & continue to next row ?

FROM INLINE with encoding 'ascii'
(
Name, Value
)
INTO postgresql://user:pwd@server:port/db?schema.table
(
Name, Value
)

WITH skip header = 1,
batch rows = 200,
prefetch rows = 200,
batch size = 1024 kB,
batch concurrency = 3,
fields escaped by '\',
fields terminated by '|'

SET client_encoding to 'utf8',
standard_conforming_strings to 'on'

$drop table if exists schema.table;$,
$drop INDEX if exists schema.table_idx;$,
$create table if not exists schema.table ( Name varchar(80), Value varchar(255) );$

Update -:
I was able to build version 3.6.2 from source and that resolved the issue. I'm not sure if 3.6.2 should be available in apt-get repository or if its intended to not have it ?

Does anyone know if in a command file, I am able to choose which src database columns are included ?

@rifhanakram I'm in the process of trying to do the same. :)

The new versions of software won't typically appear in APT until the maintainer pulls in the change

Hey! I'm having this error "there is no unique constraint matching given keys for referenced table" when trying to load form SQLite to Postgres
but there is the proper constraint in sqlite
so I dont understand
Benjamin David
@benmod_gitlab
It seems that the primary keys are not migrated
hence causing the issues
