File adapter

The File adapter is an actor adapter that performs read, write, append, and delete functions on a file. Using a file name and action (read, write, append, or delete) arguments, the File adapter performs the specified action on the specified file, and in the case of write and append, using the lines provided.


Starting with the 20.12.02 release, the File adapter supports Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). For details, see Support for IPv6.

The File adapter does not need a configuration node but, you must configure the adapter in Grid Manager.


The File adapter performs actions on the peer that executes the process. You cannot designate remote hosts for File adapter requests.
