The Load operator requires one Teradata Database load slot.

The number of concurrent load slots is, however, configurable in the Teradata Database environment using the same MaxLoadTasks field control used by FastLoad, FastExport, and MultiLoad. For example, one Teradata PT Load job equates to one FastLoad job in the count for MaxLoadTasks. For more information, see “DBS Control Utilities” in Utilities (B035-1102).

Simultaneously running many Teradata PT jobs might impact other running Teradata Database processes and applications.
