The Subject Area Resource Division method allocates weight based on a designated “share” of the available resources. This approach works best for workloads that run mostly at Normal or Background priority.

Teradata WA predefines the RPs and weights when using the Subject Area Resource Division method; AGs and weights can be user-defined.

When the Subject Area Resource Division approach is in use, there are more active AGs with less differentiation between the priorities of active AGs.

Note: The Subject Area Resource Division option cannot be used if the workloads are tactical or priority. In these cases, the Category of Work option must be used instead.
