Optimizing Lookup Transformations

Optimizing Lookup Transformations

If the lookup table is on the same database as the source table in your mapping and caching is not feasible, join the tables in the source database rather than using a Lookup transformation.
If you use a Lookup transformation, perform the following tasks to increase performance:
  • Use the optimal database driver.
  • Cache lookup tables.
  • Optimize the lookup condition.
  • Filter lookup rows.
  • Index the lookup table.
  • Optimize multiple lookups.
  • Create a pipeline Lookup transformation and configure partitions in the pipeline that builds the lookup source.
