First attempt fails. 20 min. later connection results. Topic by hagedorn 04 Dec 2012 teradata, restart, connect informatica, catalog string

I have a problem with Informatica connection to Teradata. Every night we kick off a job which gets an error connecting to Teradata. It gives the error message Unable to get catalog string. We restart the job and it connects after 20 min. and runs successfully. Any ideas regarding what the issue could be? Could it be a Data Source Resolution error?

Teradata XML services - help needed Topic by rs131112 07 Aug 2008

I have installed Teradata XML services into our test environment. During the installation I needed to modify the scripts to increase the spoolspace max for the SYSXML logon to 2GB to get the libraries to load properly - that was a bit painful. Now, I am trying to work through the first example in the document - generate a canonical schema from an existing table/view. Here's the command that I am using:call sysxml.gen_query_canonical_schema('select * from ttmp.rs_xml_test','logon','pass', outv);I am running this through TSA. It just sits there and runs with the hourglass - over 20+, 30+ minutes before I kill it. Seems like something is not right. Any comments or advise on this problem?

64 Bit OLE DB Provider for Windows Server 2008 or alternative to MSDASQL? Topic by cliffk 13 Nov 2012

We have software that does not have an ODBC option for connection to database, only OLE DB.
The software is on 64 Bit Windows Server 2008.
MSDASQL - microsofts OLE DB to ODBC Provider will not work as it is not compatible with .NET.
MSDATASHAPE does not appear to work as an alternative to MSDASQL.
1) When will the Teradata 64 Bit OLE DB Provider be released?

Using Named Parameters from SQL Server Reporting Services Topic by mr_tim 22 Apr 2011 odbc, .net data provider, parameter, named parameters, ?, @, reporting services, bids, report builder

Named Parameters are a great feature when using Teradata SQL Assistant. All one has to do is put "?my_parm" in the SQL. This can be very helpful in testing a query and can be a great time saver.

Microsoft's report development tools also provide the same feature... using "@my_parm" syntax within the query of a report. This works great with other databases. However, it does't work when using the Teradata .NET Data Provider nor ODBC to Teradata. One has to use an unamed parameter markert, simply "?", in their SQL.

When I call

ResultSet rs = dbmd.getColumns(null, "CUSTDATA", "TRANS", null);

it takes 16 seconds to get an answer back on a fairly unloaded system.  This table has 27 columns.


This seems to be excesvily slow.  Is there anything that can be done to speed this up?
