COGNOS Retry Topic by crewdy 26 Jul 2013 cognos, tasm, retry

Hi All
We have a situation where a COGNOS user is submitting many queries to our live service and TASM is, correctly, placing them in the delay queue, once our concurrency throttle has been reached but the user is then "hogging" the delay queue with upto 50 queries waiting to be serviced. This is clearly unfair to other responsible users.

Passing NULL values to a TERADATA sp, using Teradata .NET provider 1.0 Topic by abir_seth 13 Feb 2007

Passing NULL values to a TERADATA sp, using Teradata .NET provider Teradata provides Teradata .NET provider driver for connecting to Teradata using .NET 2.0,I was initally using ODBC driver, but for calling SP using CommandType.Text or CommandType.StoredProcedure, both do not return any value, so we switched to Teradata provider provided by NCR corporation . ( Can ODBC driver be used for retrieving the SP return value ??? )But I was a facing a problem related to passing NULL values to the SP.The documentation provide to use DBNull.Value, but this works perfectly well for DATE and TIME type parameters but not for STRING type parameters, where the system gives the exception NULLReferenceException.This SP works pefectly well with NULL values by using NULL values in Teradata SQL Assistant.I have even tried using parameter values as NULL,'NULL',"NULL" but all fail for one or the other parameter types, sometimeg giving Invalid DATE and time and for string types.. not accepting it as a NULL but instead as a blank space. If I need to be more elaborate, please do tell me..I can paste my code as well..Help needed is urgent.Thank

DataStage Enterprise Stage Executing Teradata Macros Topic by chuck.ehrstine@lexisnexis 08 Jul 2006

We are beginning to work with DataStage and wish to switch a lot of processing from executing on the Mainframe to DataStage. We employ a lot of parameterized Macros in our ETL environment, and some are very complex with many SQL statements and layers of Macros imbedded in them. Our expectation was that we should be able to execute macros exactly as they were developed and run in production, on the mainframe. We are experiencing abends with Macros containing more than one SQL statement. It appears the Ascential Teradata Enterprize stage is able to execute something simple like a stored procedure but is not robust. It appears to us the solutions are to leave Macro execution on the mainframe or rewrite all the macro processes for Ascential. What are the experiences of other Teradata shops? Is there some secret to getting Macros to work?
