All messages that a mainframe client sends or receives to Teradata Database normally
pass through the TDP. In addition to session, packet, and security control, mainframe
TDPs are responsible for:
Balancing sessions across assigned parsing engines
Routing responses back to the originating address space
Also, you can request DBCTIME time stamps to record when:
The TDP receives the request.
The request was queued to the server.
The server received the response.
The response was queued to the cross-memory task.
The response was returned to the input (response) buffer of the user.
