How do I create a Snowpipe?

To create a Snowpipe, you need to use the CREATE PIPE statement. The syntax for the CREATE PIPE statement is as follows:

CREATE PIPE pipe_name
(
    COPY INTO table_name
    FROM stage_name
    OPTIONS (
        file_format = file_format_name,
        staging_parallelism = number_of_threads,
        ingestion_parallelism = number_of_threads
    )
);

The pipe_name parameter is the name of the Snowpipe.

The table_name parameter is the name of the table in Snowflake that you want to load the data into.

The stage_name parameter is the name of the stage in Snowflake that contains the data files.

The file_format_name parameter is the name of the file format that the data files are in.

The staging_parallelism parameter is the number of threads that Snowpipe will use to stage the data files.

The ingestion_parallelism parameter is the number of threads that Snowpipe will use to ingest the data files into the table.

Here is an example of how to create a Snowpipe:

CREATE PIPE my_pipe
(
    COPY INTO my_table
    FROM my_stage
    OPTIONS (
        file_format = csv,
        staging_parallelism = 4,
        ingestion_parallelism = 8
    )
);

This will create a Snowpipe called my_pipe that will load data from the my_stage stage into the my_table table. The data files in the my_stage stage must be in CSV format. Snowpipe will use 4 threads to stage the data files and 8 threads to ingest the data files into the table.

Once you have created a Snowpipe, you can start loading data into Snowflake. You can do this by either manually triggering the Snowpipe or by configuring it to load data automatically.
