Setting FileLockWaitLimit, a configuration directive added to the Teradata PT global configuration file, twbcfg.ini, to any positive integer specifies the number of seconds Teradata PT jobs wait to obtain a file lock. Below is an example twbcfg.ini with the new directive:
CheckpointDirectory='/opt/teradata/client/16.20/tbuild/checkpoint' LogDirectory='/opt/teradata/client/16.20/tbuild/logs' FileLockWaitLimit='30'
If a job cannot acquire the file lock within the wait limit time, the job terminates.
If FileLockWaitLimit is not set, the default wait limit is five seconds.
