Are you looking to become familiar with Teradata from a DBA or developer perspective?
I'm interesting in DBA task
I am also newbie.... and want to learn teradata dba nay one pls suggest where to start
Please see this post for more details about some Teradata documentation / Teradata Express testing software you can start with.
how did we get to know the space occupied by indexes only ?
Pls can any one share the query.
I am not sure if we can continue this thread. Neverthless.....Empirical way is the best way which is used to estimate the size of table, including indexes.
Load some rows into the table. Get the size by querying the dictionary view DBC.TableSize.
Create the required index for which you want to calculate the size. Again query the view DBC.TableSize.
The difference gives the size of the index.
