Teradata Database allows you to allocate several types of space:
|Permanent space (perm space)||Stores data and database objects. Tables use the perm space owned by the containing database, as needed.
Owners of perm space own any object that inhabits the space.
|Spool space||The space where database queries execute. By default, executing queries draw spool space from any unused system space.|
|Temporary space (temp space)||Stores temporary tables and volatile tables. Allocation and use of temp space is optional, and is not covered in this chapter.|
For more information, see space-related topics in Database Administration.
