Subj:   Re: Source for DDL in SHOW TABLE
From:   Dieter Nöth

Hi John,

  I found a VIEW that I wrote a long time ago that isolates the date/time of statistics that were collected on a column. It's pretty much brute-force and lacks any elegance (if anybody improves it, I would love to get a more elegant solution).  

I modified it using position/index, so it's about 10kb smaller, but still brute-force ;-)) I'd like to get the rowcount, but it's stored as a double.

  There's also InTeraStats from Jim Calvert (see the link at www.teradataforum.com - under 'USEFUL LINKS'). The last time that I looked at InTeraStats was a number of years ago and so I don't know if it has any output that would be useful (like a batch mode and output to a file). If anybody has any experience with it, it would be interesting to hear about it.  

No batch mode, only a print to file. But check the Teradata Manager's Statistics Tool: It now shows statistics, too. And if you really know what you do you're even able to modify statistics...
