Temporary space allowed for creating materialized global temporary tables by this user. Temporary space is reserved prior to spool space for any user defined with this characteristic.

If no temporary space is defined for a user, then the space allocated for any materialized global temporary tables referenced by that user is set to the maximum temporary space allocated for the immediate owner.

Note that each materialized global temporary table requires a minimum of 512 bytes of PERM space to contain its table header.

Disk usage for a materialized temporary table is charged to the temporary space allocation of the user who referenced the table.

n
Number of bytes allowed for creating materialized global temporary tables by this user.
BYTES
Optional keyword that redundantly specifies the unit for the amount of TEMPORARY space allowed.
