Teradata recommends that you manage utility workloads separately from non-utility workloads. Take the following actions to achieve this:
  • Create workloads (with optional throttles) for utilities that classify by utility type.
  • Create separate workloads with no throttle for all utility requests outside of utility units of work. The classification criteria of these workloads should contain only the application names of the utilities and no utility type.
  • Exclude utility application names from system throttles.

These steps ensure that utilities, which have different resource requirements, are not mixed in with non-utility work.
