A sample Teradata PT cataloged procedure has been included. There are 2 jobsteps.

  • The first jobstep, ALLOC, allocates the checkpoint datasets if necessary.

    If they exist, the Teradata PT job uses the contained information in restart mode. ALLOC always deletes the log dataset, if it exists, and allocates a new log for the current job.

  • The second jobstep, TPT, executes Teradata PT.

    Use symbolic parameters to specify the script and job attribute files, enter any Teradata PT parameters, and create a unique high-level qualifier for the checkpoint and log datasets.

    See PT$TPTAL for an example of how symbolic parameters are set.
