I'm a newbie and cannot find the error logs for Teradata (13.10). I've googled and I get a million and one things about error logs but not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for the logs that say if TD went down or is up and healthy - all that kind of stuff. Or if you can give me the right words to search on I can find and read about it.
This may help. While using a utility(say Fast load), in the script itself u can mention the error logs.
Okay, thx, but let me ask it this way:
Let's say TD is down for some reason and you don't know why. You have to go to some error logs and look up what happened right? Where would you go?
For load utility hope this helps...folder depends on your db release... for 14.10:
Program Files (x86)\Teradata\Client\14.10\Teradata Parallel Transporter\logs
If you are running into problems getting Teradata started, the first place to check for clues is in the log file:
| || |
May be if you can get this path
This log contains messages produced during the current system boot.
You can also display the information from this log using the dmesg command. Most of the dmesg information is logged to /var/log/boot.msg.
This log contains messages produced during the previous system boot.
This is the main system log on the node.
This file contains all the messages generated by the kernel and various other programs while the system is up and running.
I just found out that only root has the rights. TD runs the server, so I guess we can't see that. Talked to the senior guy and he said he is able to figure out why the intance went down based on viewpoints alerts/messages. So now I'm focusing on getting more adept at that.
