When you use the Update operator in a Teradata PT job, each parallel instance of the Update operator:

  1. Log on to the Teradata Database, using your user name, password, Teradata Database, and account ID information specified in the job script.
  2. Loads the data from the Teradata PT data streams into the Teradata Database.
  3. Logs off from the Teradata Database.
  4. If the Update operator job is successful, terminates the job and provides information about the job in the log or to the user, such as:
    • Total number of records sent to the Teradata Database
    • Number of errors posted to the error tables
    • Number of Inserts, Updates, and Deletes applied
    • A status code indicating the success of the job
  5. If the job is unsuccessful, terminate the job and provide information about the job so that you can correct any problem and restart the job.
