Early Error Detection
The Teradata TPump utility avoids wasting time and resources on a task that contains terminating errors in either input statements, commands, or both. To accomplish this, statements and commands for a task are acquired and analyzed for detectable syntax and other errors before a Teradata TPump task is initiated on Teradata Database.
When a BEGIN LOAD command invokes Teradata TPump, and the utility can complete an error‑free pass, it proceeds. If not, Teradata TPump cleans up and terminates after an error pass. Teradata TPump uses Teradata Database to detect errors in the set of DML statements for the task. The first erroneous statement terminates Teradata TPump.
