User Guide
With multiple users creating and executing Data Mover jobs, it is important to manage what resources each user can use to avoid resource shortages. To limit user resources. use job settings permissions as follows:
  • Restrict which utilities each user or role can use. Force users to use slower, but less resource intensive, utilities like JDBC or Teradata PT API Stream. Prevent certain users from using utilities that require a load slot such as Teradata PT API Load and Update.
  • Limit the number of data streams that can be specified for each job. Each data stream is a set of new processes running on the Data Mover agent. Prevent a single user from using too many data streams and slowing down other work.

For more information, see "Job Settings Permissions" in the section About Permissions.
