The primary purpose of SQL Request and Transaction Processing is to facilitate better understanding of the output reported by the EXPLAIN request modifier.

SQL Request and Transaction Processing describes the SQL parser, including its component parts, the query capture database, the database components of the Teradata Index Wizard and related utilities, and the basics of the Teradata transaction processing environment.

This preface describes the organization of SQL Request and Transaction Processing and identifies information you should know before using it. This book should be used in conjunction with the other SQL volumes.
