Category of Work allocates weight based on importance of the workload; it is best suited for tactical or priority workloads. If Category of Work is selected, Teradata WA assigns AGs, RPs and default weights for each enforcement priority type as shown in Table 12. Therefore, it is only required that enforcement priorities are associated to workloads; the RPs and AGs are already set up. (Selecting the Category of Work approach removes any previously defined RPs or AGs.)

When using the Category of Work approach, there are fewer active allocation groups, with those groups having similar relative weights. However, there will be a clear distinction between the Tactical and Priority enforcement priority settings.

Workloads defined with the Tactical or Priority enforcement priority must use the Category of Work approach. They cannot use the Subject Area Resource Division option.
