The automate option allows you to approve statistics for collection by collect jobs. You can determine whether to automate statistics on a single object or table, multiple objects or tables, entire databases, or entire systems.

New statistics collected on a system outside of the Stats Manager portlet are not automatically approved for collection by collect jobs. To approve new statistics for collection, set the automate options that are available on the Statistics tab.

A collect job submits COLLECT STATISTICS statements to the Teradata Database for statistics that are approved for automation. You can control the scope and schedule of each collect job, as well as assign a priority to individual COLLECT STATISTICS statements.

Running a collect job can be resource-intensive on the Teradata Database so you may want to run it during periods of lower activity.
