To stop a map reassignment job immediately, call the procedure StopMovesTablesSP and specify Y for the StopQueuedActions parameter. For example:
CALL TDMaps.StopMoveTablesSP('Y',
		 :NumActionsStopped, :NumQueuedActionsStopped);
The ActionHistoryTbl records any already queued actions that are stopped .
If a table group is interrupted during the map reassignment process, related tables may be assigned to different maps and may reside on different AMPs for a long time, slowing down request processing. For this reason, Teradata recomends stopping map reassignments gracefully, allowing groups of related tables to stay together.

Do not stop the map reassignment job by issuing ABORT SESSION LOGOFF. That causes the manager session to hang. Calling StopMoveTablesSP releases the manager session. After running StopMoverSP, you need to manually abort the worker sessions.
