When an application is running and either a database crash or AP reset occurs, the following events occur:
  • The TDP session numbers are preserved and can continue to be used.
  • If a restart is detected during logoff processing, CLIv2 reconnects the session and resubmits the logoff request.
  • Affected Teradata transactions are aborted and all of the databases involved are rolled back to the state they would have been in if the transactions had not begun.
  • Affected requests that have not completed are aborted, and any work they have performed is rolled back.
  • Affected spool files on the database, including those that the database has kept for completed requests, are discarded.
  • Applications already waiting for a response before the event occurs are notified. (For when and how, see What the Application Does.)
  • Applications submitting a request during the crash and recovery process may be notified. See What the Application Does.
  • Applications later using the abort, fetch, rewind, or end request function for a Teradata SQL request aborted by the event, or submitting a new request in a transaction that was in progress when the event occurred and thus was aborted in the recovery process, are notified. See What the Application Does.
