We are pleased to announce the GCA of Teradata Multi-System Manager 13.10, available January 23, 2011. This is our third major release of Teradata MSM.
Teradata Multi-System Manager is an application that provides a powerful and simple to use approach for monitoring, administration, and control of single- and multi-system environments.
The Teradata Multi-System Manager product monitors and controls critical applications in both single- and multi-system Teradata environments. It is an event-driven solution that monitors operations, generates alerts, and pushes those mission-critical application alerts to operations staff, DBAs, and other subscribed EDW Operations staff. Teradata Multi-System Manager requires Teradata Viewpoint to support its portlet user interface.
Below are examples of some of the Teradata Multi-System Manager portlets.
All three of these can be drilled into and also have a rewind feature. There are also filtering options and options to change filter and reorganize the columns being displayed.
Below, shows an example of when an application, “SimpleSystemApp”, has a process called “LongRunningProcess” that has reached a critical condition. This results in the Process and Condition icons turning red with an exclamation mark. Moving the mouse over the icon will cause a summary of the problem to be displayed (tooltip).
Teradata Multi-System Manager automates the detection of outages and can switch applications among systems, therefore improving the ability to achieve Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). Teradata Multi-System Manager also reduces Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) by monitoring Service Level Agreements (SLA). The product does this by linking SLAs to threshold settings in MSM which, in turn, generates alerts when the threshold is exceeded.
Teradata Multi-System Manager is targeted for multi-system installations to achieve high availability and disaster recovery. However, the product can also be used in single-system environments.
The key benefits of this product are:
Teradata Multi-System Manager is able to provide these benefits by continuously monitoring multiple systems or a single system, generating alerts, and providing operational control of Teradata Query Director. Teradata Multi-System Manager provides automatic registration of resources as events are received. Starting with TTU 13.10 efix 2, the load utilities (with the exception of BTEQ) are instrumented to send Teradata Multi-System Manager events including start of a job, steps, end of job, table and rows impacted.
Teradata Multi-System Manager can also be useful in a single system environment. Single ecosystem monitoring benefits:
The diagram above provides a graphical overview of Teradata Multi-System Manager. This depicts Teradata Multi-System Manager monitoring two systems. Teradata Multi-System Manager monitors all the components in each data center (eco-system). This figure shows the components that can be monitored. Teradata Multi-System Manager is able to provide system and query routing control.
A Teradata Multi-System Manager implementation includes:
Enhanced Usability – convenience and productivity features
