Teradata SET is used to quickly capture (export) emulation information, which can be edited, and then import the information to a test system in order to imitate the target system. For example, using system information exported from a target system with four nodes, cost parameters and execution plans can be analyzed on the test system as if it also has four nodes. See Chapter 7 “Import Methods and Options.”
1 Before exporting emulation data, connect to a Teradata Database. See “Connect to a Teradata Database”on page 31.
2 Select an export method:
3 Customize the export operation. See “Export Options”on page 79.
4 Export the information needed to emulate the target environment on the test system.
The following topics explain how to use Teradata Set to capture information from a target system:
