Usage Notes

This setting is effective only when workloads are enabled from the Viewpoint Workload Designer portlet.

The session cache is refreshed on demand under these conditions:

  • Workloads are enabled, and the Workload Exception Interval is greater than PMPC_SessionRateThreshold
  • Workloads are not enabled

If neither of the conditions are met, the session cache is refreshed automatically, once during every exception interval period.

Typically the Exception Interval is less than 60 seconds, so the cache is refreshed automatically.

For best performance and the lowest system overhead, Teradata recommends that the session cache be refreshed automatically.
