I imagine many of you design your warehouse to control access to base tables through a "view database". And I am guessing that in these views, you specify to lock row for access. This is what we do and it works great, except when someone does a PI select. In that case, it appears Teradata does not place an access lock and so the user gets blocked if the table is being updated. We understand the user could be making a dirty read, that is more acceptable than a delayed block.
So does anyone know of a way to ensure an Access lock when selecting on PI through a view that locks row for access? I do realize that we could just add the locking modifier to the users' PI select statement, but expecting that of our developers all the time is unrealistic. I had hoped to handle this completely through the view layer.
An explain without PI select shows:
1) First, we lock Prod_Tables.Summ_Customer for access. 2) Next, we do an all-AMPs RETRIEVE step from...........
An explain with PI select skips step 1 above:
1) First, we do a single-AMP JOIN step from Prod_Tables.Summ_Customer by way of the unique primary index
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
