Difference between normal load and Bulk load

Normal Loading

The session which is configured for normal load allows you to pass the data into the target viva “databse Log”  (redolog)

Since the records are enter into the database log,  the integration service can perform rollback on transaction errors.

As the result the integration service can perform session recovery.

Since the records are passing to the target viva database log the integration service “increases the data loading time”

Bulk Loading

The session which is configured for bulk loading loads the high volumes of data into the target and increases session performances. When you configure the session with the bulkloading the integration service bypass the database log and enters the records into the target.

Since the integration service bypass the database log it can’t perform rollback on transaction error.

As a result the integration service can’t perform the session recovery.

The integration service does not support bulk loading into index target table.

  • Load records increase because the record loaded directly target. 

Design a maping which performs bulk wading into the target


Don’t create primary key in the target databse but however you can primary in the target designer.


Source defination tmp

target definition with the name tmp-BULK [from target menu select generate and execute primary and foriegn key]

Create a mapping with the name m-Bulk-Load

Drop the source and target defination

From SQL connect the ports to target

Create the session with the name, double click the session

Select the mapping tab set the reader and writer connection with target Load type “BULK”

Click Apply, click ok

Repository menu click on save

    As in INFORMATICA you may often have the need to obtain following things.
    1.List of users and associated groups
    2.Workflows that have last run
    3.Mappings in a folder
    4.Default values within a mapping

    This information can be queried in the PowerCenter tools

    Follow the Steps Given in Video – https://youtu.be/zbkPxiqD4GM
    and learn how to fire query on Repository.
