    tableausdk.Exceptions.TableauException: TableauException (20200): ERROR:  unable to buffer copy-in data on RHEL7

    Marco Mistroni

      hi all

      i am using extractAPI to generate a hyper file out of a 14m x 89  table on  RHEL7

      I have 1TB of space on the host, however generating hyper for this big file results

      in this exception:

       

        self.set_column_values( new_table, table_def, add_index )

        File "xx_.py", line 140, in set_column_values

          tableau_table.insert( new_row )

        File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tableausdk/HyperExtract.py", line 545, in insert

          raise Exceptions.TableauException(result, Exceptions.GetLastErrorMessage())

      tableausdk.Exceptions.TableauException: TableauException (20200): ERROR:  unable to buffer copy-in data

       

      When i google it , it seems that this is due to no space on the disk, however  i have 1tb of space, so this is making me think that either

      the problem is with the data (a column is too long) or somehow extractAPI is trying to store logs in some other directories.....

       

      could anyone assist?

      kind regards
