A Notify Exit routine specifies a predefined action to be performed whenever certain significant events occur during a Teradata TPump job.
Notify Exit routines are especially useful in an operator-free environment where job scheduling relies heavily on automation to optimize system performance.
For example, by writing an exit routine in C (without using CLIv2) and using the NOTIFY . . . EXIT option of the BEGIN LOAD command, a routine can be provided to detect whether a Teradata TPump job succeeds or fails, how many records were loaded, what the return code was for a failed job, and so on.
