Run build_dsainputs on one of the following servers, depending on which DSA configuration you are using:
DSA Configuration Server Bundled DSA Data Mover server External DSA External DSC server
Copy the build_dsainputs script to the external DSC server and run from there. The script can be copied to and run from any directory.
Create a dsainputs file for the TPA node using the build_dsainputs tool.
The build_dsainputs tool creates the /tmp/dsainputs files for SMP and MPP databases. It optionally transfers the files to the TPA nodes if the user with write access to the /tmp directory is specified with the -u option. An identity file that contains a private key can also be specified with the -i option.The following example shows the output when no parameters are provided when running build_dsainputs:
build_dsainputs -d [-t] | -m <media_server_hostname>[,<media_server_hostname>...] | [-i <identity_file> -u <userid>] | [-u <userid>] | -h Parameters: -d Creates a /tmp/dsainputs file for the DSC server. -m <ms_hostname>[,<ms_hostname>...] Creates /tmp/dsainputs file(s) for a media server. Run this script one time for each Teradata system. Specify one host for an SMP System or a comma separated list for an MPP System. Creates a /tmp/dsainputs.<media_server_hostname> file for each host in the list. The /tmp/dsainputs files must be copied to their corresponding host before installing the ClientHandler rpm. Examples: 1) build_dsainputs -m devsys Creates /tmp/dsainputs.devsys for SMP system 'devsys'. Copy this file to the corresponding database host and rename to /tmp/dsainputs before installing the ClientHandler rpm. 2) build_dsainputs -m kiwi1,kiwi2 Creates dsainputs files for a 2-node MPP system with hosts kiwi1 and kiwi2. The following files are created: /tmp/dsainputs.kiwi1 /tmp/dsainputs.kiwi2 Copy these files to the corresponding database hosts (rename to /tmp/dsainputs) before installing the ClientHandler rpm. -i <identity_file> (Optional) When used with the -m option this specifies the identify_file (that contains the private key) that will be used along with the userid (provided with the -u option) to scp the /tmp/dsainputs(s) files to their respective hosts. The -u option must be provided when the -i option is included. Example: build_dsainputs -m kiwi1,kiwi2 -i ./my_identity_file -u ec2-user -u <userid> (Optional) When used with the -m option this specifies the userid that will be used to scp the /tmp/dsainputs(s) files to their respective host(s). Note that if you are using this without the -i option and password-less SSH is not configured, you will be prompted for a password for each file transfer. Example: build_dsainputs -m kiwi1,kiwi2 -u root -t (Optional) Must be used with -d option to generate the DSA input file. If specified, Teradata-specific parameters are added to /tmp/dsainputs. If not specified, PostgreSQL parameters are added instead. -h Displays usage help.The following example shows running build_dsainputs for a 4-node MPP system. The -u option has been provided to transfer the files to the individual TPA nodes:
# ./build_dsainputs -m kiwi1,kiwi2,kiwi3,kiwi4 -u root Generating /tmp/dsainputs.kiwi1 - copy this file to /tmp/dsainputs on kiwi1 before installing the ClientHandler rpm. Generating /tmp/dsainputs.kiwi2 - copy this file to /tmp/dsainputs on kiwi2 before installing the ClientHandler rpm. Generating /tmp/dsainputs.kiwi3 - copy this file to /tmp/dsainputs on kiwi3 before installing the ClientHandler rpm. Generating /tmp/dsainputs.kiwi4 - copy this file to /tmp/dsainputs on kiwi4 before installing the ClientHandler rpm. Transferring /tmp/dsainputs file to kiwi1. dsainputs.kiwi1 100% 349 0.3KB/s 00:00 Transferring /tmp/dsainputs file to kiwi2. dsainputs.kiwi2 100% 348 0.3KB/s 00:00 Transferring /tmp/dsainputs file to kiwi3. dsainputs.kiwi3 100% 348 0.3KB/s 00:00 Transferring /tmp/dsainputs file to kiwi4. dsainputs.kiwi4
- For an MPP system, nodes listed in the media server with the -m option must resolve to IPs that are reachable from each MPP TPA node.
- When you are running the tool on an SMP system, only a single file generation and transfer message appears.
Install the DSA ClientHandler RPM on the TPA nodes.
For more information, see Teradata® Data Stream Utility Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide, B035-3153.If you are installing the clienthandler on the command line instead of using PUT, use the rpm -ivh ClientHandler*.rpm command instead of the bundled script. If you use the bundled clienthandler_install.sh script on the command line, the /tmp/dsainputs property settings are overwritten and you must remove the ClientHandler using rpm -e and then start over with step 1 to create the dsainputs file for the TPA node.
Perform the following steps to update the operating system on the BAR NC TPA nodes:
Adjust the following operating system tunable parameters on the TPA nodes where BAR NC is running:
net.ipv4.tcp_max_syn_backlog to 16384 (default 2048) net.core.somaxconn to 16384 (default 128)
Run the following commands on the TPA nodes to incorporate changes immediately:
# echo 16384 > /proc/sys/net/core/somaxconn # echo 16384 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_max_syn_backlog
Restart the ClientHandler on those TPA nodes:
# /etc/init.d/clienthandler restart
Modify the sysctl.conf with the following values to make the values persistent at startup:
net.core.somaxconn=16384 net.ipv4.tcp_max_syn_backlog=16384Teradata recommends incorporating these changes to avoid network communication issues between DSMain and BAR NC. See KB0016835 for more details.
