This utility interprets and expands SQL statements that have been incorporated in an application program.

Teradata Data Connector API

Teradata Data Connector API is a component that reads and writes flat files to provide the input/output interface for access modules and BTEQ. For additional information about Teradata Data Connector API, see the following documents:
  • Teradata Tools and Utilities Access Module Programmer Guide, B035-2424.
  • Teradata Tools and Utilities Access Module Reference, B035-2425.

Teradata FastExport

Teradata FastExport uses multiple sessions to quickly transfer large amounts of data from tables and views of a Teradata Database to a client-based application. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Teradata FastLoad

Teradata FastLoad quickly loads large amounts of data to empty tables in a Teradata Database. This utility uses multiple sessions to load data. However, it loads data into only one table in the database per job. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Teradata Geospatial Utilities

Teradata Geospatial Utilities loads Shape file data into tables in a Teradata Database. It uses multiple sessions to load data, but it loads data into one table per layer on a Teradata Database.

Teradata GSS Client

Teradata GSS Client is the Teradata implementation of industry-standard Generic Security Services APIs in C language. This utility provides enhanced security services interfaces between Teradata network clients and a Teradata Database.

Teradata Index Wizard

Teradata Index Wizard (TIWiz) is a Windows-based GUI application that allows a Teradata Database administrator to create or identify a workload, perform index analysis for a workload, and then verify and apply index recommendations. This utility helps to increase efficiency and maximize system performance.

Teradata JDBC Driver

Teradata JDBC Driver is a library of routines that enables Java applications to connect to a Teradata Database.

Teradata MultiLoad

Teradata MultiLoad (MultiLoad) provides an efficient way to deal with batch maintenance of large databases. Useful for performing fast, high-volume maintenance on multiple tables and views of a Teradata Database. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Teradata Named Pipes Access Module

Teradata Named Pipes Access Module is a component that provides an interprocess communication link between a writer process (such as Teradata FastExport) and a reader process (such as Teradata FastLoad). This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products and with Teradata FastExport, Teradata FastLoad, Teradata MultiLoad, and Teradata Parallel Data Pump. It is accessible from the command line.

Teradata OLE DB Access Module

Teradata OLE DB Access Module is a command line utility that acts as an interface between Teradata load and export utilities (Teradata FastLoad, Teradata FastExport, Teradata MultiLoad, Teradata Parallel Data Pump, Teradata Parallel Transporter, and Basic Teradata Query) and data sources for which an OLE DB provider is available. The access module quickly moves data between an OLE DB data source and a Teradata Database without requiring intermediate storage.

Teradata Parallel Data Pump

Teradata Parallel Data Pump (TPump) is a data loading utility that helps maintain (update, delete, insert, and atomic upsert) the data in a Teradata Database. This utility uses standard Teradata SQL to achieve moderate to high data loading rates. Multiple sessions and multi-statement requests are typically used to increase throughput. It is accessible from the command line.

Teradata Parallel Transporter Base

Teradata Parallel Transporter Base is a package that contains the script-driven interface (Teradata Parallel Transporter) and the application programming interface (Teradata Parallel Transporter API). Teradata Parallel Transporter is an object-oriented and scalable client application that allows you to perform high-speed, parallel data operations (extraction, loading, and updating) on a Teradata Database.
