Much of the Teradata PDE system configuration is in vconfig.txt.

Is documentation on this file available? I can't find more than a reference or two to it in the TD docs, or even on this forum.

Specifically, I'm interested in what the various fields for each section stand for, and what they mean/do.

If anyone knows more, and would be willing to share, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Re: vconfig

It's information about the logical and physical configuration of your system, e.g. which AMP runs on which node and which disks are assigned to that AMP.
You'll never gonna modify that vconfig.txt on any production system, this is handled automatically by the PUT (Parallel Upgrade Tool).
And on a demo version you might kill the system and then you reinitialize it because sysinit is missing.
