0 - 3 of 3 tags for sessions

Hi Experts,
Are there any differences b/w the multiple sessions that are invoked through BTEQ and loader utilities.  If so, what are they.

Greetings Experts,

What is the basic difference between the instances and sessions in TPT.

If I declare a Maxsessions attribute for a operator to be 10 over a 10 AMP system, and the consumer operator uses all 10 sessions (as producer is able to keep the consumer busy)

I have SQL that needs to run some preprocessing creating a volatile table to be exported to a file. If I use a setup step TPT is using a different session for each step and the volatile table goes away. Anyone have a work around?
