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
table should be empty.
Multiload works in 5 phases whereas fastload works in two
If we want to load data into an empty table then fastload
is best option as compared to multiload.

Compare to FastLoad Multiload is slower But loads into
Multiple Tables with different DML Operations.Multiload
suports maximum 20 DML Operations.multiload slowdown
operation of AMP.There is no Trasand Journal
Overhead.Multiload Maximum 15 Multiload scripts run at a
time.Multiload supports duplicates also
FastLOad loads data into empty tables.it loads only one
table at a time.compare to all utiities it is faster.it
can't load the duplicates(either multiset NUPI).it loads
the error data into error tables.fastload fastload does
insert operation between Begin and endloading statements.
