If you have problems with buffering, use a pipe coming out of exp(ort) and tar from the pipe onto tape. The pipe mechanism blocks properly.

One limit is max pipe size. Around 5100 bytes. since this is really memory, it does not affect performance. buffer=4096 is safe.

This is also useful for very large exports that break the 2 gig limit.

First step is creating an inode type -p.

Code's on the web severally and in the aftermarket DBA books.
