Determines whether the Teradata Intelligent Memory (TIM) cache preload task is enabled.

When enabled, the TIM preload task loads the most frequently accessed data into the TIM cache (a portion of FSG cache) during system startup, after the logons-enabled stage. This allows faster access to this data.

This field applies only when FSG cache is not otherwise preserved across a system reset, such as when the tpareset -x or -f options are used to force a reset.

Valid Settings

Setting Description

Usage Notes

Frequency of data access is monitored by Vantage. Cylinders containing the most frequently accessed data are designated to have a data temperature of VERYHOT. These cylinders are loaded into the TIM cache during system startup.
