Parallel and scalable data-loading and unloading utility used for the following:
  • High volume batch loads into empty tables
  • High volume loads into populated tables

  • Exporting or extracting data from tables
TPT includes interface modules to acquire data from all major sources (for example; files, ODBC-compliant databases, pipes, and queues) through three control mechanisms:
  • A scripting language
  • An application programming interface (API)
  • Easy Loader, a command-line interface to invoke simple load jobs
