The STATUS DBS command reports the status of the Teradata Database.


Usage Notes

The STATUS DBS command returns a status report for the Database Status Table only. The Database Status Table includes a status row for each vproc that is defined on the system. When applicable, a footnote will follow the Database Status Table, indicating which AMP vproc has been selected as the Control AMP.

The following table shows the columns of the vproc status row.

Column Description
Vproc Number Uniquely identifies the vproc across the entire system.
Rel. Vproc# Represents the number of the vproc number relative to the Node upon which the vproc resides.
Node ID Identifies the Node upon which the vproc resides. The Node ID is formatted as CCC-MM, where CCC denotes the cabinet number and MM denotes the module number.
Can Move This indicates whether the vproc can be migrated to another node in its defined clique if its primary node fails.
Crash Count Represents the number of times the vproc has crashed.
Vproc State Represents the current PDE system state of a vproc.
Config Status Displays the Teradata Database Logical Configuration Map Status of a vproc.
Config Type Represents the Teradata Database Logical Configuration Map Type of a vproc.
Cluster/Host No. Displays the Cluster Number if the Config Type is AMP or displays the Host No. if the Config Type is PE.

Cluster is the cluster number for the AMP as defined using the Configuration Utility. The valid range of cluster numbers is 0 to 8099.

Host No. is the host number that was assigned to the PE using the Configuration Utility. The valid range of host numbers is 1 to 1023.

RcvJrnl/Host Type
  • Displays the RcvJrnl (that is, Recovery Journaling) flag if the Config Type is AMP. The RcvJrnl flag is Off if an AMP is down and the other AMPs in its cluster are not to create a recovery journal for the down AMP.
    If you anticipate that an AMP will be down for a long period of time, then Teradata recommends an offline rebuild of all tables on the AMP (after the RcvJrnl flag has been set to Off).
  • Displays the Host Type if the Config Type is PE. The Host Type is the host type for the PE as defined using the Configuration Utility and is one of the following:
    • IBM
    • COP
    • ATT3B
    • BULLHN
    • OS1100
TVS Vproc For AMP vprocs, displays the associated TVS vproc.
