With the previous community site there was a beautiful post every time a Viewpoint major/minor version was released. However for Viewpoint 16.00 there is none and the standard documentation is describing in excruciating detail the functionalities. But there is no release notes or whats new section...
So does someone know that has changed between Viewpoint 15.11 and 16.00?
Regards, Johannes Vink
Viewpoint 16.00 highlights:
Teradata Database 16.00 support
Space Usage updates
Stats Manager updates
Query Monitoring updates
Viewpoint 16.0 updates
Teradata QueryGrid™ management and monitoring
Great, thanks! No major changes, but still a gradual development. I'll check what the dependencies are, in TAYS I've found the version compatability Excel.
Can you advise if there is any additional workload management features in Viewpoint 16.00 for use with Teradata Appliances, in particular 2850 running on SLES 11 and RDBMS 15.10?
A couple of comments.
First off as we stay pretty much in-line with the Teradata DB releases, new Teradata DB 15.10 features are almost always exposed in the associated Viewpoint version, that being Viewpoint 15.10. So asking about what may be in Viewpoint 16.00 specific to Teradata DB 15.10 is usually going to be "nothing new" as the Teradata DB 15.10 features have already been release aligned with Viewpoint 15.10.
With Viewpoint 16.00, we did introduce support for Flex Throttles based on two events being "Available ATWs" and "CPU utilization". However as mentioned above, these new workload management aspects require Teradata DB 16.00 as well as Viewpoint 16.00. They are also only offered as part of the TASM implementation.
Hi, thanks for the response. I was more interested if there were more Workload Management options available for a 2850 Appliance. Previoulsy we were very limited on workload options for our 2650 Appliance.
Given that SuSE 11 alone has introduced resource management, I was wondering if any these can be used through Viewpoint on a 2850 Appliance.
Appliance default workload management is TIWM (Teradata Integrated Workload Management) versus the larger workload management feature set in TASM. The new features with Viewpoint / Teradata DB 16.00 were TASM features so not able to leverage those with a Teradata DB 15.10 Appliance.
I just had a couple of my Viewpoint servers upgraded to 16.10. I am looking for the same type of information for 16.10. What is new and different with VP 16.10?
There is an available TEN course (#56851) that covers What's New with Viewpoint and Data Lab 16.00 and 16.10 releases. Here's an overview of the new features specific to Viewpoint 16.10:
Support for Teradata Database 16.10 release:
- MAPS Manager portlet – Teradata MAPS (Multiple Hash Maps)
- Workload Management - New TASM IO event
- QueryGrid enhancements
- Space Usage now displays more object types
- Monitored Systems: Offers a more descriptive system name (up to 30 chars)
- Alert Notification Service supported with Windows Server 2012 R2 & 2016
- Support for Microsoft Edge Browser
