The time it takes to save a crashdump can take anywhere between 45 minutes to several hours. There are several factors that affect how long saving a crashdump could take:

  • The size of the crashdump (snapshot dumps are much smaller than regular dumps)
  • How many nodes you have
  • How busy the system is
  • Whether you save the crashdump without fallback (the default) or with fallback
  • Also, if you are using FTP services to send crashdump files to Teradata Customer Support, you must factor in that time as well.
