Subj:   Re: TARA Archive - Email Alerts
From:   Sanchez, Idrike

  Is there any commands available to check if backups are running in TARA and take the status?  

Yes. This is what we do. After the job starts we run this tarajobquery command every 10 minutes until the backup completes or fails (If it fails we notify the DBA).

     /opt/teradata/tara/gui/bin/tarajobquery -j  -f  -l -u administrator -e

This generates a series of files (One for each stream) plus a few more.

The job ID we get by querying /var/opt/teradata/tara/server/jir.

We later read through each file, parse each line to total up how much has been backed up and the last object. This gives the size since when the backup started. This allows us to find a rate per stream and email the results as the backup is progressing.

We also start the tara job using /opt/teradata/tara/server/bin/taralaunch -u administrator -e /opt/teradata/tara/server/bin/tara.pwd -j

This way the backup is only started after the loads complete. In our case we only backup weekly so it works out.
