The Reconfiguration Estimator utility runs from Database Window or comparable interface to the Teradata Database console subsystem, such as cnsterm.
Reconfiguration Estimator should never be stopped using the Database Window stop command. It can be stopped using the Reconfiguration Estimator ABORT command during the following phases:
- Entry of Reconfiguration Estimator parameters
- Pseudo Reconfig (the simulated reconfiguration performed to estimate processing time)
- Table level estimates.
Reconfiguration Estimator cannot be stopped while data loading is in progress. The data loading phase is noted in the utility output screen.
The user account used to run Reconfiguration Estimator should be empty, and must be granted the following privileges on itself:
- CREATE DATABASE
- DROP DATABASE
- CREATE TABLE
- DROP TABLE
For example: GRANT CREATE DATABASE ON REuser TO REuser
