What It Does

When Teradata FastLoad is invoked, the utility executes the Teradata FastLoad commands and Teradata SQL statements in the Teradata FastLoad job script. These direct Teradata FastLoad to:

1 Log on to the Teradata Database for a specified number of sessions, using username, password, and tdpid/acctid information.

2 Load the input data into the Teradata FastLoad table on the Teradata Database.

3 Log off from the Teradata Database.

4 If the load operation was successful, return the following information about the Teradata FastLoad operation and then terminate:

  • Total number of records read, skipped, and sent to the Teradata Database
  • Number of errors posted to the Teradata FastLoad error tables
  • Number of inserts applied
  • Number of duplicate rows
