The DBS Control utility, dbscontrol, displays and modifies various Teradata Database configuration settings.

DBS Control settings, also called DBS Control fields, are stored in the DBS Control Globally Distributed Object (GDO). GDOs are binary files that store Teradata Database configuration settings. They are distributed to and used by every node in the system. The PDE layer of Teradata Database ensures that the GDO is consistent across all virtual processors.

The default settings documented in this chapter apply to the Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse platform. Default settings on other purpose-built platforms, such as data appliances, may be different.
