Business Objects passing END SQL values to Teradata so they appear in DBQL Topic by Ian Russell 29 Feb 2012

JDBC Driver and mass update Topic by mnylin 10 May 2011 jdbc, etl, webmethods

We are using webMethods for certain near real-time ETL feeds into our Teradata system. This tool uses JDBC to connect to the Teradata system and issue single row DML operations. In working with the webMethods development team, we asked if it was possible to batch multiple transations into a single commit statement. The answer we received was that the JDBC adapter being used does not support mass updates without using a stored procedure.

SPSS/Clementine Topic by Greyghost 11 May 2011 spss, clementine

Currently SPSS/Clementine is installed to operate against our Teradata system, and when I check the DBQL logs to review who is doing what, I see that the user Clementine is running SQL. This user "Clementine" is a generic userid and password set up in Teradata.

Is it possible to configure SPSS/Clementine or Teradata so that the ACTUAL user id (person submitting the query) is captured in the DBQL logs instead of the generic Clementine id? Right now, I am unable to tell WHO is actually running jobs. All I can tell is someone is running a job and using Clementine to do it.

Moving Data from SQL Server to Teradata Topic by Greyghost 22 Mar 2011 ssis, sql server, ole load


I'm not sure if I posted this in the right forum, but here goes.

I need to load (basically copy) tables from a SQL Server application and load those tables to Teradata. I can access the tables thru SQL Assistant now, but am not sure how I should set up this "copy" from one platform to another. There are 100+ tables that I need to copy, and this copy will be done on a regular basis (weekly or monthly) so a manual process is not ideal.

Someone suggested using OLE Load to do this copy. Is this the best way? Can OLE Load be set up to run in batch mode? If so, how?
