The Teradata Profiler Plug-in is based on the Eclipse plug-in framework and the Teradata Plug-in for Eclipse and Teradata Studio Data Source Explorer (DSE). Teradata Profiler Plug-in 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) if using with Eclipse.
To install the Teradata Profiler Plug-in via the Eclipse Update Site process, bring up Eclipse and run the Software Updates process.
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 (download above). Extract the files and simply copy thejar file from the "ProfilerPlugin-Express\update\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.
