The Filer utility, filer, enables trained personnel to display or modify data structures related to the Teradata Database File System, including the Write-Ahead Logging (WAL) log. Use Filer to find and correct problems within the file system and the WAL log.

Caution:

Filer works at a low level of the Teradata Database File System. Commands that manipulate File System structures are potentially dangerous to the operation of your system if used improperly. To use Filer, you should have a thorough understanding of the Teradata Database File System.

Scenarios Runs From

Filer runs from Database Window or comparable interface to the Teradata Database console subsystem, such as cnsterm.

For general information on starting the utilities from different interfaces, see Appendix B: “Starting the Utilities.”
