CLI is the interface between an application and the Micro Teradata Director Program (MTDP). CLI does the following:
  • Builds parcels that MTDP packages for sending to the database using the Micro Operating System Interface (MOSI), and
  • Provides the application with a pointer to each of the parcels returned from the database.

MTDP is the interface between CLI and MOSI. MOSI is the interface to the database.
