April 22, 2014 \ Ananth TM Comparison with existing Teradata stages The following list details comparisons with Teradata stages: • Limited support for stored procedures and macros, but the Stored Procedure plug-in is still better suited for it. • No more utilities, named pipes, control scripts, or report files. • Interface with the Parallel Transporter is through a direct call-level API. • Error messages are reported in the DataStage Director log. • MultiLoad plug-in jobs that use advanced custom script features cannot be migrated to use the Teradata Connector. Number of players is determined by the PX Engine config file.
