Teradata Database error restart

for many reasons. Most commonly, a restart is due to a fatal error condition in Teradata Database.

The Teradata crashdump capture occurs before the restart on each node to preserve the error information in node memory.

Forced Teradata Database restart (with Teradata crashdump)

at any time, using restart commands.

Only use restart commands for maintenance, so you do not interrupt jobs that are running. See “Commands for Forcing a Teradata Crashdump” on page 561.
