Function

tTeradataFastLoadUtility reads a database and extracts fields using queries.

Purpose

tTeradataFastLoadUtility executes a database query according to a strict order which must be the same as the one in the schema. The retrieve list of fields is then transfered to the next component, using a connection flow (Main row).

Component Family

Databases/Teradata

 

Basic settings

Property type

Either Built-in or Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.

 

 

Built-in: No property data stored centrally.

 

 

Repository: Select the repository file in which the properties are stored. The fields that follow are completed automatically using the data retrieved.

 

Execution platform

Select the Operating System type you use.

 

Host

Host name or IP address of the database server.

 

Database name

Database name.

 

Username and Password

DB user authentication data.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

 

Table

Name of the table to be written. Note that only one table can be written at a time.

 

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-In or stored remotely in the Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.

 

 

Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

 

 

Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs. Related topic: see Talend Studio User Guide.

  

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

 

Script generated folder

Browse your directory and select the destination of the file which will be created.

 

Load file

Browse your directory and select the file from which you want to load data.

 

Field separator

Character, string or regular expression to separate fields.

 

Error file

Browse your directory and select the destination of the file where the error messages will be recorded.

Advanced settings

Specify the character encoding you need use for your system.

 

Check point

Enter the check point value.

 

Error files

Enter the file name where the error messages are stored. By default, the code ERRORFILES table_ERR1, table_ERR2 is entered, meaning that the two tables table_ERR1 and table_ERR2 are used to record the error messages.

 

Return fastload error

Select this check box to specify the exit code number to indicate the point at which an error message should display in the console.

 

ERRLIMIT

Enter the limit number of errors detected during the loading phase. Processing stops when the limit is reached.

The default error limit value is 1000000.
