These reserved query bands are used by various Teradata load utilities. Do not use these query band names for your applications. They are only listed to make you aware that you should not use them in your own code. For more information about query bands and load utilities, see Query Bands and Load Utilities.

As a general rule, customer-written applications should not use these query band names. They are reserved for use by Teradata-written applications and applications written by third party Teradata partners.

Following are the load utility reserved query bands:

Query Band Description
DSAJobType Specifies either backup or restore. Applicable to the session query band only.
UtilityAWT Specifies the number of AWTs required for the current job. Applicable to the session query band only.
UtilityDataSize Provides an estimate for the size of the data to be loaded, unloaded, backed up, or restored by a utility component. The following values are valid.
  • SMALL
  • MEDIUM
  • LARGE

Customer-written applications should not use this query band name to prevent conflicts. Applications using embedded utilities can rely on those utilities to set the query band name appropriately.

UtilityName Provides the name of the calling load utility. It represents the mechanism by which data is loaded, extracted, archived, or restored, either by a standalone utility such as FastLoad or by an embedded utility such as JDBC FastLoad.

Customer-written applications should not use this query band name to prevent conflicts. Applications using embedded utilities can rely on those utilities to set the query band name appropriately.
