Setting the Checkpoint Directory

If a default checkpoint directory is defined in the global configuration file or the local configuration file, or both, submit a job by entering the following command:

tbuild -f <job script name> -z <checkpoint interval> -j <unique job name>

To overwrite the definition of a checkpoint directory in the global and local configuration files, specify the directory you want with the following using the following command:

tbuild -f <job script name> -r <checkpoint directory> -z <checkpoint interval> -j <unique job name>

As a job runs, Teradata PT automatically searches for associated checkpoint files in the checkpoint directory. If a checkpoint file is found from a previous run, the job restarts where it left off.

To restart a job with the default checkpoint directory, enter the following command:

tbuild -f <job script name> -z <checkpoint interval> -j <unique job name>

To restart a job with the user-specified checkpoint directory, enter the following command:

tbuild -f <job script name> -r <checkpoint directory> -z <checkpoint interval> -j <unique job name>
