Teradata Workload Analyzer (Teradata WA) is a tool that analyzes and generates candidate workloads from a Windows PC. Teradata WA provides three major areas of guidance:

  • Recommending appropriate workload goals
  • Recommending workload to AG (allocation group) mapping plus priority scheduler weights
