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.

Infosphere Datastage Enterprise Edition architecture and key concepts

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. It can integrate data from the widest range of enterprise and external data sources Implements data validation rules It is useful in processing and transforming large amounts of data It uses scalable parallel processing approach It can handle complex transformations and manage multiple integration processes Leverage direct connectivity to enterprise applications as sources or targets Leverage metadata for analysis and maintenance Operates in batch, real time, or as a Web service In the following sections, we briefly describe the following aspects of IBM InfoSphere DataStage: Data transformation Jobs Parallel processing InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage can access data in enterprise applications and data sources such as: It describes the flow of data from a data source to a data target.

However, some stages can accept more than one data input and output to more than one stage. In Job design various stages you can use are: It is used for administration tasks.

It is the main interface of the Repository of DataStage. It is used for the storage and management of reusable Metadata. Through DataStage manager, one can view and edit the contents of the Repository. A design interface used to create DataStage applications OR jobs. It specifies the data source, required transformation, and destination of data.

Jobs are compiled to create an executable that are scheduled by the Director and run by the Server Director: It is used to validate, schedule, execute and monitor DataStage server jobs and parallel jobs. Activities Shared Unified user interface A graphical design interface is used to create InfoSphere DataStage applications known as jobs. Each job determines the data sources, the required transformations, and the destination of the data.

Jobs are compiled to create parallel job flows and reusable components.

The Designer client manages metadata in the repository. While compiled execution data is deployed on the Information Server Engine tier. Common Services Metadata services such as impact analysis and search Design services that support development and maintenance of InfoSphere DataStage tasks Execution services that support all InfoSphere DataStage functions Common Parallel Processing Fatastage engine runs executable jobs that extract, transform, and load data in a wide datsatage of settings.


The engine select approach of parallel processing and pipelining to handle a high volume of work.

Pre-requisite for Datastage tool For DataStage, you will require the following setup. Infosphere DataStage Server 9. You can choose as per requirement.

DataStage Tutorial: Beginner’s Training

To migrate your data from an older version of infosphere to new version uses the asset interchange tool. Installation Files For installing and configuring Infosphere Datastage, you must have following files in your setup. These markers are sent on all output links to the target database connector stage.

When the “target database connector stage” receives an end-of-wave marker on all input links, it writes bookmark information to a bookmark table and then commits the transaction to the target database. This information is used to, Determine the starting point in the transaction log where changes are read when replication begins.

You will create two DB2 databases. One to serve as replication source and One as the target. You will also create two tables Product and Inventory and populate them with sample data. Moving forward you will set up SQL replication by creating control tables, subscription sets, registrations and subscription set members. We will learn more about this in details in next section. Here we will take an example of Retail sales item as our database and create two tables Inventory and Product.

These tables will load data from source to target through these sets. Under this database, create two tables product and Inventory. Step 5 Use the following command to create Inventory table and import data into the table by running the following command.

Since now you have created both databases source and target, the next step we will datastge how to replicate it. The following information can be helpful in setting up ODBC data source. Creating the SQL Replication objects The image below shows how the flow of change data is delivered from source to target database.

You create a source-to-target mapping between tables known as subscription set members and group the members into dayastage subscription. The changes done in the source is captured in the “Capture control table” which is sent to the CD table and then to target table. While the apply program will have the details about the row from where changes need to be done.

It will also join CD table in subscription set. A subscription contains mapping details that specify how data in a source data store is applied to a target data store. Note, CDC is now referred as Infosphere data replication.

InfoSphere CDC delivers the change data to the target, and stores sync point information in a bookmark table in the target database. In the case of failure, the bookmark information is used as restart point. In our example, the ASN. Use the following command. Step 5 Now in the same command prompt use the following command to create apply control tables.


Step 7 To register the source tables, use following script. It prompt Apply program to update the target table only when rows in the source table change Image both: This option is used to register the value in source column before the change occurred, and one for the value after the change occurred. After changes run the script to create subscription set ST00 that groups the source and target tables.

The script also creates two subscription set members, and CCD consistent change data in the target database that will store the modified data. This data will be consumed by Infosphere DataStage. Step 10 Run the script to create the subscription set, subscription-set members, and CCD tables. Open it in a text editor. For example, here we have created two. Creates a job sequence that directs the workflow of the four parallel jobs. Datastage jobs pull rows from CCD table. One job sets a synchpoint where DataStage left off in extracting data from the two tables.

Starting Replication To start replication, you will use below steps.

Mark as Duplicate

When CCD tables are populated with data, it indicates the replication setup is validated. Step 1 Make sure that DB2 is running if daatastage then use db2 start command. Step 2 Then use asncap command from an operating system prompt to start capturing program.

Keep the command window open while the capture is running. Step 3 Now open a new command prompt. Accept the default Control Center.

Double click on table name Product CCD to open the table. It will look something like this. For that, you must be an InfoSphere DataStage administrator. Once the Installation and replication are done, you need to create a project. In DataStage, projects are a method for organizing your data.

It includes defining data files, stages and build jobs in a specific project. To create a project in DataStage, follow the following steps. Click the Projects tab and then click Add.

DataStage jobs Built-in components. These are predefined components used in a job. We will see how to import replication jobs in Datastage Infosphere. The designer-client is like a blank canvas for building jobs. It extracts, transform, load, and check the quality of data. It provides tools that form the basic building blocks of a Job. It connects to data sources to read or write files and to process data.

The following stages are included in InfoSphere QualityStage: A new DataStage Repository Import window will open. This import creates the four parallel jobs. Inside the folder, you will see, Sequence Job and four parallel jobs.

Step 6 To see the sequence job. It will show the workflow of the four parallel jobs that the job sequence controls. Each icon is a stage, getExtractRange stage: It will set the starting point for data extraction to the point where DataStage last extracted rows and set the ending point to the last transaction that was processed for the subscription set.
