Deleting temp tables created during workflow run

Avatar

Level 2
Hi Folks, We are connecting to Teradata from ACC. So if we run a workflow with keep interim results as checked lot of temp tables gets created and it's occupying a lot of space. Do you guys know how to drop these tables or is there any configuration to auto flush this. Note : We cannot uncheck the check box ( interim results ) as it's essential for us to view the targets.

Hi KeerthiKarna,

 

It's not recommended to keep this option checked in Prod. Do you still need the interim results after your workflow completion? If not then remove the option once you don't need it for a workflow e.g after 7 days.

 

Usually database cleanup use to clean temp table once the keep interim results option is not checked.

You can also defined at db level a process to cleanup temp tables that are not modified after a certain period.

You can identified them with a request Name like '%wkf%'

 

Thanks,

David

@DavidKangni  In PROD even if we dont keep the interim check box ON we are still facing the Adobe slowness and we are not able to identify which workflow is taking a huge Temp space, Could you please provide your support to identify the reason behind getting the Disc space error on PROD instance?

Hi Keerth,

 

Unfortunately, the act of keeping interim results creates temporary tables. These tables cannot be dropped unless the interim results have been removed from the workflow and the Database Cleanup workflow is able to drop them. Additionally, please note that documented best practices warn against using this in production for this very reason.

 

Adobe best practices:

Have you thought about using the target approval process instead to view and approve the target?

I reinforce what Craig is saying, you CANNOT tick this option across all your workflows. It goes against all the best practices and is ut your data storage out of control.

If you have to validate the target audience prior sending a communication, use the Approval process as sus-mentioned but please do change your way of working if if you want a system that scales and is stable.

Thanks
