The Teradata PT communication area, referred to as TELINFO, should be used for communication across nodes, among processes, and threads. It contains session information for linking the parallel instances into one job.

The main application also needs to distribute the Teradata PT communication area (TELINFO) to the worker applications or copy it to the worker instance memory.
