Element Description Key Considerations
partition_number The number of the partition that you want to check for consistency. Find the partition numbers in the partnum column of the systables system catalog table.


The check partition argument with the task() function returns information that is equivalent to output of the oncheck -pt command. The output contains general information such as the maximum row size, the number of keys, the number and size of extents, the pages allocated and used per extent, the current serial value, and the date that the table was created.

The admin() function returns an integer that you can use to find information in the command_history table in the sysadmin database.


The following example prints information for partition 1048611:
EXECUTE FUNCTION task("check partition","1048611");
