If you have an in-depth understanding of PD set configuration, you may want to use the Pre-Migration Tool to refine the otherwise automatic results of migrating priority-scheduling settings when upgrading a PSF-licensed SLES 10 system to SLES 11.
Before creating rule sets, verify that your PD sets are configured in a manner that best meets your priority-scheduling goals.
For detailed information on the components and configuration of PD sets, see Teradata Manager User Guide (B035-2428) and Utilities, Volume 2, L - Z (B035-1102). For detailed information on creating rule sets from PD sets, including mapping considerations, see Teradata Workload Analyzer User Guide (B035-2514).
