Licensing options for this format begin with FME Desktop Professional Edition.
The Teradata Non-Spatial reader and writer modules provide FME with access to attribute data held in Teradata database tables. FME provides read and write access via Teradata’s JDBC driver, which must be installed separately.
Downloading the JDBC Driver
Note: For best results, use the JDBC driver that matches the version of the software being communicated with.
You can download the driver from the Teradata Downloads page. Teradata's download typically contains the following files:
- tdgssconfig.jar (only for versions prior to Teradata 16)
Installing the JDBC Driver
To view instructions for installing the JDBC driver, please see Getting Started with JDBC.
The performance of this format is dependent on the amount of memory allocated to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). The following environment variable allows you to specify memory available to Java Plugins:
- FME_JVM_MIN_HEAP_SIZE: Initial heap size for initializing the JVM. If unset, the default value is 1024K.
This variable must be set in multiples of 1024 and greater than 1 MB. To indicate kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes, append k or K, m or M, or g or G, respectively. For example, any of these values is acceptable:
- FME_JVM_MAX_HEAP_SIZE: Maximum heap size for initializing the JVM. If unset, the default value is 16384K.
This variable must be set in multiples of 1024 and greater than 2 MB. To indicate kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes, append k or K, m or M, or g or G, respectively. For example, any of these values is acceptable:
Note: To pass additional parameters used by FME to the Java Virtual Machine, use the JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS environment variable.
