Information on the usage of the Teradata Database is collected by user and by account number. Control is determined by the definition of each CREATE USER statement.

An account is associated with a group of users whose usage charges are maintained by the Teradata Database. Account IDs may be established for a user with the ACCOUNT phrase in the CREATE USER statement. If ACCOUNT is not specified, the default is the account ID of the immediate owner of the user. If the owner has multiple account IDs, the first account ID is taken for the user as the default.

The following sections describe the accounting information available for any Teradata Database session.

You can monitor usage with the following Data Dictionary views:

  • AccountInfo
  • AllSpace
  • AMPUsage
  • DiskSpace
  • LogOnOff
  • TableSize
  • The AllSpace, DiskSpace, TableSize, and AMPUsage views are useful in tracking Teradata Database resources for accounting purposes, and in determining how effectively resources are being utilized by accounts and users.
