The following table describes the events that cause a Teradata crashdump.
|This event …||Can occur …|
|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.
