Multiload can at max 5 tables with non unique secondary
indexes on them. where as in fastload u cannot have
secondary indexes on the table.
In multiload you can insert,update or delete data in
already populated tables whereas in fastload the target

If we want to load data into an empty table then fastload
is best option as compared to multiload.
