What's New in 14.10 for Unity Ecosystem Manager

UDA
The UDA channel is for Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture including the Analytical Ecosystem and other UDA influences. This channel provides information specific to the integration and co-existence of multiple systems, in particular when a mix of Aster, Teradata, and Hadoop are present. It is also meant to support information around the UDA enabling technologies so products like Viewpoint, Data Mover, Connectors, QueryGrid, etc.

What's New in 14.10 for Unity Ecosystem Manager

Unity Ecosystem Manager (Ecosystem Manager) is part of the Teradata Unity portfolio of products (Unity Director, Unity Loader, Unity Data Mover and Unity Ecosystem Manager).  Ecosystem Manager monitors and controls critical applications in both single and multi-system Teradata environments.  It is an event-driven system that monitors operations, generates alerts, and pushes those mission-critical application alerts to operations staff, DBAs, and other subscribed EDW staff. 

The Unity Ecosystem Manager 14.10 release focus was on customer monitoring enhancement requests, many of which were tied to providing an integrated dashboard for problem detection, drill down and analysis.  The release includes focused performance improvements, further Unity product integration, Ecosystem explorer dashboard and new client OS support:

  • New Explorer dashboard
    • Includes Application, Jobs, Tables, Hardware (Systems and Servers), Software (Daemons running on servers) metrics in an integrated operational dashboard

  • Adds new filter and display based on relationships for more effective problem alerting and analysis – select a Job and display related Applications, Tables and Servers.

  • Improved Server detail view with information critical to report examination

  • Full rewind and trend analysis of Jobs and Server metrics so operational changes can be reviewed over time.

  • Common Repository Data collection service has been integrated across the Unity portfolio including support for Teradata Aster and Hadoop systems
  • Self-registration of tables affected by jobs  that become dependencies of an application
  • A common interface to enable monitoring and control for HA state of infrastructure including other TMS applications (BAR, TDM, Unity Director)
  • Ability to capture and store TPT operational metadata providing resource utilization information (job parameters, detailed execution statistics, response time) for more detailed analysis – Requires TTU 14.10.00.04 minimum

 

  • Provides user defined email content based on triggering event properties

Unity Ecosystem Manager 14.10 integrates all major components in Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture including monitoring of Teradata, Aster and Hadoop Systems and their supporting servers that drive ETL operations and BI reporting.   

Ecosystem Manager 14.10 redesigned the component concept in support of high availability requirements.  Components were split into Servers, for reporting on the hardware operational aspects and Daemons, for reporting on the software operational aspects running on a server.  Daemons can be grouped as Active/Active or Active/Standby.  In an Active/Active group, when a Daemon fails, the software is still available through the other Daemons in that group.  In Active/Standby when the Daemon fails it can trigger an alert to bring the Standby Daemon on line. 

Through the Ecosystem Manager Application feature, one can develop an application that will monitor all key aspects of the ETL operation.  From the Web Server where the initial data is generated, the copy operation to the Hadoop system for further transformation through to the insertion of data into the Teradata Database where the application completes and the data is now available for Business Analysis.  Any failure within that application can cause an alert to trigger an event, such as an email notification to the Ecosystem Administrator for troubleshooting purposes.  The new Explorer dashboard will then allow the Administrator to rapidly troubleshoot the problem.  From the application view, one can look at the Job’s, Tables and Server related to that application to pinpoint where in the cycle the application failed.  Once identified, corrective actions can then be deployed to ensure SLA’s of the business analyst are met.  Unity Ecosystem Manager 14.10 is available now for order.

We at USPS have viewpoint 14.10.00.07.b58.  Where is this new Ecosystem manager dashboard?  I don't see any portlet or content like this.

Ecosystem Manager is an add-on to Viewpoint, it doesn't come by default. You should contact your Teradata CS representative for assistance.
