    Command Central

    Teradata Corporation offers Teradata

    Manager as the command center for

    monitoring the Teradata Database and

    visualizing real-time performance and

    historical trends. This PC-based graphical

    systems management platform contains a

    powerful, fully-featured suite of special-

    ized tools and applications to centrally

    monitor and control the Teradata Data-

    base. Teradata Manager, which operates

    from a single graphical user interface,

    collects, analyzes, and displays workload

    performance and database utilization

    information in either report or graphic

    format without impacting database users.

    An easy-to-read dashboard feature allows

    DBAs and systems administrators to easily

    identify issues that require attention.

    Teradata Managers client/server architec-

    ture stores performance data in a central

    location for access by any number of

    clients. Because data are collected centrally

    for all clients, Teradata Manager will not

    impact the performance of the databases

    being monitored.

    Performance Analysis and

    Problem Resolution

    Teradata Managers suite of workload

    and performance monitoring applications

    collects, queries, manipulates, and displays

    current and historical performance and

    usage data to allow you to quickly identify

    and resolve resource bottlenecks, thereby

    ensuring that your Teradata system is

    running at peak efficiency.

    The heart of Teradata Manager is the

    Dashboard, which provides you with

    a summary of the current state of the

    system on a single page. The page contains

    real-time data and trend charts showing

    resource consumption over the past 60

    minutes or 24 hours. These include

    Configuration Summary, Performance

    Summary, Resource Usage (both physical

    and virtual), Session and Lock information,

    Session History, Control functions, and

    graphic displays of Resource and Session

    data. You can drill down on performance

    information to examine trends at the

    system, user, account, application, or

    workload group level. Potential bottlenecks

    are immediately visible via color alerts.

    Centralized Alerts/Event Management

    facilitates the monitoring of performance

    characteristics and faults on Teradata

    Database. It can automatically activate

    actions, such as sending a page, sending

    e-mail, or sending a message to an SNMP

    system. Other applications and utility

    programs can also use the Alert function

    by using a built-in request interface.

    Alert Policy Editor defines actions and

    specifies when they should be taken based

    on thresholds that you set for performance

    metrics, database space utilization, and

    messages in the database Event Log.

    Workload Management

    Teradata Manager Dashboard has been

    enhanced to take advantage of the

    advanced features of Teradata Dynamic

    Workload Manager and is the visualization

    component of Teradata Active System

    Management. It displays minute-by-

    minute information about the current

    usage and performance of your workloads,

    enabling you to easily visualize any

    unexpected conditions, such as queries

    exceeding their response times thresholds

    or larger than expected data volumes. You

    can look at general workload performance

    or drill down to get detailed information

    on an individual workload. And all of

    the workload management reports are

    displayed from a single, easy-to-read


    Figure 2. The Alert Viewer allows you to easily view system status for multiple systems.

    Teradata Manager Trend Analysis collects

    summarized workload data and reports

    historical performance and usage trends

    from a workload perspective. The infor-

    mation can then be used to refine your

    workload definitions to better meet

    business needs. Or you can use the infor-

    mation to determine the time periods or

    specific queries that are taking up more

    than their fair share of resources. Armed

    with this understanding about your

    workloads, you can make the correct

    adjustments to keep your Teradata system

    running smoothly.

    Database Management

    Teradata Managers database management

    applications allow you to monitor system

    tables and space usage and perform

    database administration via a graphical


    Space Usage monitors disk space utiliza-

    tion and reallocates permanent space from

    one database to another.

    System Maintenance provides various

    macros for performing cleanup of system

    tables in Teradata Database.

    Operational Control

    Teradata Managers applications help you

    monitor and maintain your critical system


    Session Information dynamically moni-

    tors the status of sessions on logical host

    processors. The status can be updated as

    frequently as every six seconds depending

    on the size of the database and the work-

    load. Information is reported on the

    current status of a session including Idle,

    Active, Blocked, Responding, Parsing,

    Aborting, Details, Top Ten CPU, and

    Prolonged Idles. With Session Information,

    you can quickly identify abnormal condi-

    tions in Teradata Database and abort any

    jobs that are adversely impacting the system.

    Remote Console allows you to run many

    of the Teradata console utilities from the

    Teradata Manager PC.

    Error Log Analyzer provides an interface

    to view the error logs for an associated

    Teradata Database.

    LogOnOff Usage presents daily, weekly,

    and monthly logon statistics.

    Query Execution

    BTEQWIN, the graphical user interface for

    the Basic Teradata Query Facility (BTEQ),

    incorporates the ease-of-use features of

    Windows on the Teradata Manager PC.

    You benefit from familiar Windows

    functionality. Teradata Manager applica-

    tions all provide a consistent, graphical


    Customizable Installation

    With Teradata Manager, one PC can

    manage multiple Teradata platforms or

    multiple PCs can manage a single Teradata

    platform from distributed locations. You

    decide how each of your Teradata Manager

    PCs is configured and assigned. Each PC

    can be configured using industry-standard

    wizards with the appropriate Teradata

    Manager applications for the job. You

    can order a CD-ROM that contains all

    Teradata Manager software, documenta-

    tion, and the Internationalization Guide.

    Teradata Lowers Cost of


    Teradata Managers powerful, versatile

    collection of integrated database manage-

    ment tools provides you with real-time

    insight to handle increasingly complex

    production workloads. It allows you to

    efficiently process your most critical work

    and keep your entire enterprise running

    at peak performance. This translates to

    less work for administrators and a lower

    cost of ownership than most other data

    warehouse databases on the market today.
