Hello All,
 
Teradata Utilities are specialised tool for loading or exporting huge volume of data as compared to conventional SQL tools like SQL Assistant & BTEQ. I wish to learn the fundamental performance gain reason between them. I have provided my understanding on them below. I would appreciate any addition/correction to them.

While loading rows into a table, FastLoad displays, by default, an output message for every 100,000 rows loaded,  for example:

**** 14:47:20 Starting row 100000
**** 14:47:21 Starting row 200000
**** 14:47:22 Starting row 300000
...

If the number of rows being loaded is less than 100,000, FastLoad will not output any of these messages.

These messages are used as heartbeats that indicate that FastLoad is working for a long running job.

That was fine for jobs decades ago, however, for today's jobs where millions (and even billions) of rows are being loaded this much output may not be sensible. Can we imagine what the console output would look like with the default output message rate of every 100,000 rows?
