Installing gpfdist

Installing gpfdist

gpfdist is installed in $GPHOME/bin of your Greenplum Database master host installation. Run gpfdist on a machine other than the Greenplum Database master or standby master, such as on a machine devoted to ETL processing. Running gpfdist on the master or standby master can have a performance impact on query execution. To install gpfdist on your ETL server, get it from the Greenplum Load Tools package and follow its installation instructions.
