If you cannot use FTP services to send your crashdumps to Teradata and must save your crashdumps to disk, use the DUL utility. DUL is a separate package that you must order and install individually. For more information on DUL, see Teradata Vantage™ - Database Utilities , B035-1102 .
- Rows of data dumped from the AMPs
- Internal load module correspondence information
- Applicable rows from Software_Event_LogV
Mainframe systems have only one copy of each of these files. System with multiple nodes have one copy for each node involved in the crashdump.
By default, crashdump files are named Crash_yyyymmdd_hhmmss_nn where:
|yyyymmdd||Year, month, and day of the crashdump|
|hhmmss||Time (hour, minute, and second) of the crashdump|
|nn||Sequential number associated with the crashdump|
You can change the file name using BTEQ, but remember that the timestamps are important. For more information on DUL, see Teradata Vantage™ - Database Utilities , B035-1102 .
