Standalone Operators

Standalone operators perform specialty processes that do not involve sending data to, or receiving data from, a data stream. In other words, standalone operators solely use input data from job scripts as their source.

Standalone operators can perform the following functions:

  • Execute DDL and other self-contained SQL statements
  • Execute host operating system commands
  • Execute a DELETE task on the Teradata Database
  • Teradata PT includes the following standalone-type operators:

  • OS Command operator
  • DDL operator
  • The Update operator, when it is executing the Delete Task and if no data is required.
  • Standalone operators are summarized in Table 2 on page 37. For details, see the Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference.
