tDepartitioner – Docs for ESB 5.x




This component will be available in the Palette of
the Integration perspective of your studio on the
condition that you have subscribed to one of the Talend Platform
solutions or Big Data solutions.

Note that Talend Studio also enables the automatic implementation of parallelization across a
Job without use of the parallelization components and we recommend using that approach. For
further information, see the section describing how to enable parallelization of data flows
of the Talend Studio User Guide. However,
if you need to understand how to use these specific parallelization components, bear in mind
that the parallelization components work closely with each other to accomplish parallel
execution on given processes: the tPartitioner component
dispatches the input records into a specific number of threads; the tCollector component sends these threads to its following components for
parallel execution; the tDepartitioner component regroups
the outputs of the processed parallel threads; the tRecollector component captures the output of a given tDepartitioner component and sends the captured data to the next

tDepartitioner Properties

Component family




This component regroups the outputs of the parallel processes
executed by its preceding components.


This component assembles the outputs of the parallel execution
processes so that tRecollector can
capture those outputs.

Basic settings

Schema and Edit

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields to be processed and
passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or stored remotely in the

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the
current schema is of the Repository type, three options are

  • View schema: choose this option to view the
    schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option
    to change the schema to Built-in for local

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change
    the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to
    all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the
    current Job, you can select No upon completion and
    choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository

Click Sync columns to retrieve the schema from the
previous component connected in the Job.


Buffer Size

Enter the number of rows to be processed before the memory is freed.

tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to collect the log data at the component


This component is the end component of the parallel execution
processes in a Job.

This component requires tRecollector to be able to output the execution

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the
component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This
variable functions only if the Die on error check box is
cleared, if the component has this check box.

NB_LINE: the number of rows processed. This is an After
variable and it returns an integer.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable
functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl +
to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

User Guide.
