Re: new table format and CONNECT engine



If it it read only, why don't you just import it with load data infile
periodically, such as every 30 seconds?  Load into new table then swap,
just like you would a materialized view.  LOAD DATA INFILE handles fixed
width files if you do:

If the fixed with LOAD DATA INFILE won't work, then just load the file with
a delimiter that does not exist in the file, so that all lines are treated
as a single value.  Use the LOAD DATA ... SET syntax combined with SUBSTR()
to extract the columns.  It isn't too difficult to make it work, but it
might require a little trial and error.

Here is a very old blog post with a trick to get "top" like output in the
database without having to run the "top" tool.  It uses the LOAD DATA ...
SET technique, so it will give you something to go on:
