Teradata PT maintains a restart log table for the Load, Stream, and Update operators, to store checkpoint data for the job. The information in the restart log table is normally not accessed directly by Teradata PT users, but is automatically used by the Teradata PT infrastructure when a job is restarted. Once the job completes successfully, the restart log is automatically dropped.
The restart log for a particular operator is stored under the name specified in the LogTable attribute for the operator.
For required syntax and rules for specifying the name of the LogTable the chapter on the Load, Stream, or Update operator in Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference.
For information on restarting a job “Restarting A Job” on page 203.
