Simplifies Data Capture
Teradata SET provides an easy way to resolve Optimizer‑related problems and discrepancies on a target system and to capture system information. Use Teradata SET to automate the process of exporting and importing system information for query‑plan generation.
The alternative is to use SQL statements which, unlike Teradata SET, requires knowledge of exactly what information to capture and which SQL statements to use. Using SQL statements is time‑consuming and prone to user‑introduced errors.
