Session Pooling


Session Pooling

A session pool is a whole bunch of sessions that are logged on to Teradata using the same logon string.

A session pool is started by a START POOL command and this command is initiated by the application.

Can anyone explain from what applications this command can be fired.I belive it cannot be done through bteq.

Also is any way to verify the session pool limit(max and min no. of sessions) for an application using session pooling ?

Re: Session Pooling

START POOL is a mainframe TDP operator command. It is not initiated by an application.

For more information, refer to the Teradata Directory Program Reference, available at
