GO Loader Studio and GO Loader Agent Explained

GO Loader Studio

GO Loader Studio is the modelling and interactive loading part of the GO Loader suite. You can use GO Loader Studio to load individual files or directories interactively.

GO Loader Agent

GO Loader Agent performs the same functionality GO Loader Studio but via a command line interface run either as .bat (Windows) or .sh (Linux/Solaris) script. GO Loader Agent commands enable you to perform dual data loads, process COU files as well as create indices and run GO Loader tools.
