Notify Exit Routines

A notify exit routine specifies a predefined action to be performed whenever certain significant events occur during a Teradata TPump job.

Notify exit routines are especially useful in an operator‑free environment where job scheduling relies heavily on automation to optimize system performance.

For example, by writing an exit routine in C (without using CLIv2) and using the NOTIFY . . . EXIT option of the BEGIN LOAD command, a routine can be provided to detect whether a Teradata TPump job succeeds or fails, how many records were loaded, what the return code was for a failed job, and so on.

Note: Beginning with Teradata Tools and Utilities 14.10, use the NEW NOTIFY EXIT to compile and run against TTU14.10 TPump.
