Teradata FastLoad is a command‑driven utility which can be used to quickly load large amounts of data in an empty table on a Teradata Database.
Data can be loaded from:
Teradata FastLoad uses multiple sessions to load data. However, it loads data into only one table on a Teradata Database per job. To load data into more than one table in the Teradata Database, multiple Teradata FastLoad jobs must be submitted, one for each table.
Note: Full tape support is not available for any function in Teradata FastLoad for network‑attached client systems. To import data from a tape, write a custom access module that interfaces with the tape device. For information about how to write a custom access module, refer to the Teradata Tools and Utilities Access Module Programmer Guide (B035‑2424).
