Changes Take Effect
After the next Teradata Database restart.
Lock Logger runs as a background task, recording lock information in a table. Use the Lock Logger (dumplocklog) utility to create or designate a table to be used for storing lock log entries.
LockLogger is useful for troubleshooting problems such as determining whether locking conflicts are causing high overhead.
Some values in the lock log table represent internal IDs for the object on which the lock was requested. The lock log table defines the lock holder and the lock requester as transaction session numbers. The lock log table can be joined with the DBC.DBase, DBC.TVM, and DBC.EventLog tables to gain additional information about the object IDs and transaction session numbers.
