The Dump Unload/Load utilities, dul and dultape, save or restore system dump tables.

If a Teradata Database failure occurs, the system automatically saves the contents of the affected AMP and its associated PE in a system‑generated “dump table.” The information in these tables can be used to determine the cause of a system failure. Dul and dultape can be used to load the dump tables to DVD, disk, or tape media.

Before you can use dul and dultape, the associated packages must be installed on a Teradata Database system.
