Permanent Space Allocations

Permanent data disk space includes database and user fixed PERM allocation. The Teradata database initialization routine creates these system users:

  • DBC (at the top of the hierarchy)
  • SYSTEMFE (owned by DBC)
  • SYSADMIN (owned by DBC)
  • All permanent space not consumed by SYSTEMFE and SYSADMIN is allocated to user DBC. The ramifications of the space allocation for each of the three system users are discussed in the subsections that follow.
