This chapter briefly describes the query capture database (QCD) that supports the various Database Query Analysis tools such as the Query Capture Facility, the Visual EXPLAIN utility, and the Teradata Index Wizard.

It also provides the definitions for the QCD tables. The physical implementation of QCD is presented here so you can create and perform your own queries and applications against the information it stores.

For information about using the Query Capture Facility, see Database Administration.
