Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse Express 05.04.01
About this download

The Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse is based on the Eclipse plug-in framework and the Teradata Plug-in for Eclipse Data Source Explorer (DSE). Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse enables the user to Profile Teradata and Aster tables/columns via the DSE as well as create projects containing analyses. The descriptive statistics available with the Teradata Profiler Plug-in provide a variety of functions to statistically analyze and explore data tables in a Teradata or Aster database. This is a complete version of the Teradata Profiler for Eclipse, without an evaluation time limit, however, it is limited in use to up to 40 GB of "connected" data. (Note that the validation of the 40 GB limit for the Express Edition requires SELECT access to the dbc.allspace view in Teradata or EXECUTE permission on the nc_relationstats SQL-MR function in Aster for the user.)

► NOTE: This version requires the Teradata Plug-in for Eclipse 15.10.01.00 or greater (available here).

To install the Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse via the Eclipse Update Site process, bring up Eclipse and run the Software Updates process.

  • Click OK
  • Select all of the Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse features to install.
  • Click Next to proceed with the installation.

  • When the Feature License Agreement appears, select I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click Next.
  • When prompted click Finish to continue the installation. A warning message may appear regarding unsigned JAR content. Click OK to continue.

To install from a local Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse Update Site, download the zip file locally. Refer to the User Guide for further instructions on installing Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse.

For installation in Teradata Studio or Teradata Studio Express, you will need the ProfilerPluginForEclipse.zip file. Extract the files and simply copy the two jar files from the "Profiler Local Install\plugins" folder and paste into the Teradata Studio or Teradata Studio Express "plugins" directory (ususally found under c:\Program Files\Teradata\Client\15.10). Note, with Teradata Studio Express the Profiler windows will all display in the bottom panel (next to the SQL History). This is because the Teradata Studio Express does not have a perspective that Profiler can open its windows in. If desired, you may drag the Profiler windows to other locations within Studio Express for better viewing.

Teradata Profiler Plug-in for Eclipse contains open source components. The zip file contains the source code (as required) and licenses for these components. This package does not contain proprietary Teradata source code.

For help getting started using the Teradata Profiler Plug-in, refer to the User Guide.

Known Issues
==============================

    TWM-1395: If you have multiple analyses open with results and graphs and close
    an analysis input it will close its results and graphs too. When that happens,
    the graph and Excel icons for the remaining open analyses results move to the
    left side of the view area which can be confusing.

    TWM-1163: Profiler Perspective windows do not appear in the proper place in
    Teradata Studio Express. This is an issue with Studio Express not having a
    perspective for the Profiler Plug-in.
