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:
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.
