The Teradata PT consumer operators in this section read data from the data stream and write it to an external target.

The Teradata PT job script invokes a consumer operator using an APPLY statement. For further information on using SELECT to specify a producer operator, see Coding the APPLY Statement and the section on APPLY in Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference (B035-2436).

The following table briefly describes and compares the function of each Teradata PT operator that can be used as a consumer when moving data from Teradata Database to an external data target:

Operator Description
Operators that Write Data to a non-Teradata Target
DataConnector Operator Writes data to flat files and functions similarly to the DataConnector standalone utility.

Features:

  • Can write directly to an external file or through an access module.
  • Writes to files and tables in Hadoop.

Limitations:

  • Cannot write ZIP and GZIP files to a Hadoop/HDFS data source.

For details, see Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference (B035-2436).

Operators that Pre-process Data before Writing to a non-Teradata Target
FastExport OUTMOD Adapter Operator Uses a FastExport OUTMOD routine to pre-process data before writing it to the data target.
