This book, Support Utilities, describes utility programs most often used to support Teradata Database. These utilities are used primarily by Teradata Support personnel and field engineers.

These utilities manipulate Teradata Database at a low level. Incorrect use of these utilities can damage your system. Before using these utilities, consult with the Teradata Support Center.

Chapter names reflect the utility common name followed by the name of the executable utility program enclosed in parentheses, for example, Control GDO Editor (ctl). Use the executable program name to start the utility from the command line or from Database Window.

Some utilities run only from Database Window (DBW). For information, see the “Database Window (xdbw)” chapter in Utilities.
