Though unlike other RDBMSs you won't find many of them .... but some can be space management across databases/users, DBQL tables periodic truncation (if enabled offcourse), refreshing statistics, etc.



-- If you are stuck at something .... consider it an opportunity to think anew.

How's that different for any other RDBMS?

Alex those tasks are common across database platforms. However, Teradata DBA's generally do not have to concern themselves with operating system level tasks, file segments, index (de)fragmentation, and file system administration. Some of these tasks are the result of Teradata not currently running on commodity hardware. Should Teradata become more prevalent in SMP environments running as a virtual appliance on VMWare some of these things may become more important and require additional DBAs or a broaden technical background to support such systems.
