User Guide

Teradata Vantage™ is our flagship analytic platform offering, which evolved from our industry-leading Teradata® Database. Until references in content are updated to reflect this change, the term Teradata Database is synonymous with Teradata Vantage.

These Teradata Database macros can be used to report resource usage data and, when enabled, the tables can be used to:
  • Observe the balance of disk and CPU usage
  • Obtain pdisk usage information
  • Check for bottlenecks
  • Provide an overall history of the system operation
  • Monitor the utilization of AMP Worker Tasks (AWTs)
