Flat File Adapter File Size Rollover, trail files are not always the configured trail size (Doc ID 1558484.1)

Last updated on JULY 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate Application Adapters - Version 11.2.1.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We are using OGG Flat File Adapter to write OGG trail data to a file.  
We have rollover size in properties file:
dsvwriter.files.data.rollover.size=5000

When we do multiple 5-10k row commit from source source database, we see the flatfile is generated with a size around 5-6MB each and rollover. This seems to be consistent with rollover.size = 5000 (KB) parameter.

However, sometimes we see much larger files.  Why?
