Teradata TPump uses standard SQL (not block transfers) to maintain data in tables.

TPump also contains a resource governing method whereby you can control the use of system resources by specifying how many inserts and updates occur minute-by-minute. This allows background maintenance for insert, delete, and update operations to take place at any time of day while Teradata Database is in use.

TPump provides the following capabilities:

  • Has no limitations on the number of instances running concurrently.
  • Uses conventional row hash locking, which provides some amount of concurrent read and write access to the target tables.
  • Supports the same restart, portability, and scalability as Teradata MultiLoad.
  • Perform data Upserts.
