Post a Comment. Many thanks for visiting my Blog..!! Share This Blog..!! IBM DataStage 8. DataStage 8. This is a list of the ten best things in Datastage 8. Most of these are improvements in DataStage Parallel Jobs only while a couple of them will help Server Job customers as well. Faster Performanace then Older Version.

Faster, faster, faster. A lot of tasks in DataStage 8. It can open, understand and store XML schema files. The new XML read and transform stages are much better at reading large and complex XML files and processing them in parallel:.

Transformer Looping. The best Transformer yet. The DataStage 8. With looping inside a Transformer you can output multiple rows for each input row. Transformer Remembering. A key change in a DataStage job involves a group of records with a shared key where you want to process that group as a type of array inside the overall recordset. I am going to make a longer post about that later but there are two new cache objects inside a Transformer — SaveInputRecord and GetSavedInputRecord 0 where you can save a record and retrieve it later on to compare two or more records inside a Transformer.

Here is an aggregation example where rows are looped. Click here to Know Pivoting through Transformer. Easy to Install. Easier to install and more robust.

Mind you — I jumped aboard the DataStage train in version 3. Check In and Check Out Jobs. Check in and Check out version control. You can send artefacts to the source control system and replace a DataStage component from out of the source control system. High Availability Easier than ever. High Availability — the version 8. On top of that there are new chapters for the high availability of the metadata repository, the services layer and the DataStage engine.

New Information Architecture Diagramming Tool. Solution Architects can draw a diagram of a data integration solution including sources, Warehouses and repositories. Vertical Pivot. It is now available and it can pivot multiple input rows with a common key into output rows with multiple columns.

Key based groups, columnar pivot and aggregate functions. You can also do this type of vertical pivoting in the new Transformer using the column change detection and row cache — but the Vertical pivot stage makes it easier as a specialised stage.

Makes it easier to process complex flat files by providing native support for mainframe files. Fixed and variable length records. Single or multiple record type files. Balanced Optimizer Comes Home. In DataStage 8. Balanced Optimizer looks at a normal DataStage job and comes up with a version that pushes some of the steps down onto a source or target database engine.

IE it balances the load across the ETL engine and the database engines. Version 8. XML data. DataStage has historically been inefficient at handling XML files, but in 8.

Also, we can now process XML data in parallel. If you think that is cool, it can also do it the other way around i. It can also convert data from one XML format to another. Transformer Stage. It is one of the most used and the most important stages on DataStage and it just got better in 8. Transformer Looping:. Over the years DataStage programmers have been using workarounds to implement this concept. Now IBM has included it directly in the transformer stage. Output looping: Where we can output multiple output links for a single input link.

Input Record:. Output Record:. Input looping: We can now aggregate input records within the transformer and assign the aggregated data to the original input link while sending it to the output. Transformer change detection:. SaveInputRecord — Save a record to be used for later transformations within the job. GetInputRecord — Retrieve the saved record as when it is required for comparisons. System Variables:. LastRow : Indicates the last row in the job. LastRowInGroup : Will return the last row in the group based on the key column.

Record dropping is arrested if the target column is nullable. And also stage variables are now nullable by default. New Data functions:. There are a host of new date functions incorporated into DataStage 8. I personally found the below function most useful. DataFromComponents years, months, daysofmonth.

Ex: DataFromComponenets ,07,20 will output DataOffsetByComponents basedate, years offset, month offset, daysofmonth offset. Ex: DataOffsetByComponents , 2,1,1 will output DataOffsetByComponents , -4,0,0 will output I will write another detailed blog on the new data functions shortly.

Parallel Debugger:. We can now set breakpoints on the links in our jobs. When the job is run in debug mode, it will stop when it encounters a breakpoint. From here we can step to the next action on that link or skip to the next row of data. Functionality Enhancements:. Vertical Pivoting:. At long last vertical pivoting has been added.

Now in DataStage 8. We can now Check-in and Check-out directly from DataStage. Information Architecture Diagramming Tool:. Now solution architects can draw detailed integration solution plans for data warehouses from within DataStage. Balanced Optimizer:. Its Fast! The run time performance of jobs has also improved. The parallel engine. Email This BlogThis! No comments:. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.


Introduction to Datastage Enterprise Edition (EE)

With the recent versions of Datastage 7. Parallel processing Datastage jobs are highly scalable due to the implementation of parallel processing. The EE architecture is process-based rather than thread processing , platform independent and uses the processing node concept. Datastage EE is able to execute jobs on multiple CPUs nodes in parallel and is fully scalable, which means that a properly designed job can run across resources within a single machine or take advantage of parallel platforms like a cluster, GRID, or MPP architecture massively parallel processing.


IBM InfoSphere Information Server Version 11.7.1 documentation

Datastage is an ETL tool which extracts data, transform and load data from source to the target. The data sources might include sequential files, indexed files, relational databases, external data sources, archives, enterprise applications, etc. DataStage facilitates business analysis by providing quality data to help in gaining business intelligence. Datastage is used in a large organization as an interface between different systems. It takes care of extraction, translation, and loading of data from source to the target destination. It was first launched by VMark in mid's.


Top DataStage Interview Questions and Answers

It is a tool that is used for working with large data warehouses and data marts for creating and maintaining a data repository. We can develop a SQL query or we can use a row generator extract tool through which we can fill the source file in DataStage. In DataStage, merging is done when two or more tables are expected to be combined based on their primary key column. Both these files are serving different purposes in DataStage.
