BTEQ can establish dedicated Teradata sessions in sets, so that multiple SQL requests can run in parallel within a given set. This is especially helpful to process a high volume of repetitive tasks whose order does not matter, such as loading a large number of rows onto a database. In this case, having a number of parallel sessions with each session handling some of the requests can substantially speed up operations. See SESSIONS.
