Teradata PT provides four functional operator types:
- Producer operators: read data from a source and write to a data stream.
- Consumer operators: read from data streams and write to a data target.
- Filter operators: read data from data streams, perform data filtering functions such as selection, validation, cleansing, and condensing, and then write filtered data to data streams.
- Standalone operators: perform processing that does not involve receiving data from or sending data to the data stream.
