Syntax Description


a numeric value that specifies the interval between checkpoint operations in minutes.


To specify this option, you must first set MULTILOAD=YES.

If you do not specify a value for ML_CHECKPOINT=, the Teradata Multiload default of 15 applies. If ML_CHECKPOINT= is between 1 and 59 inclusive, checkpoints are taken at the specified intervals, in minutes. If ML_CHECKPOINT= is greater than or equal to 60, a checkpoint occurs after a multiple of the specified rows are loaded.

ML_CHECKPOINT= functions very similarly to CHECKPOINT in the native Teradata MultiLoad utility. However, it differs from DBCOMMIT=, which is disabled for MultiLoad to prevent any conflict.

See the Teradata documentation on the MultiLoad utility for more information about using MultiLoad checkpoints.
