Teradata Managed Server (TMS) TMSs consist of a Dell R720, Dell R720xd, or Dell R710 servers used for solution offerings that are peripheral to Teradata processing.

All Teradata managed servers have onboard connectivity to the server management network. They can also be connected to BYNET V5 switches.

If the option to connect to a BYNET V5 switch is used, port consumption ramifications should be considered.

For information about Dell R720, Dell R720xd, or Dell R710 TMS configurations, see the Teradata Platform Framework Cabinet Model 12 Product and Site Preparation Guide, B035-5388.

Virtualized Management Server (VMS) A virtualized management server (VMS) is an Intel SR1625 chassis or Intel R1208 chassis (one VMS per 670 C/H system). A VMS can host the following virtual machines (VMs):
  • CMIC -- The CMIC provides server management services for the system cabinets.
  • SWS -- The SWS is the service entry for the system.
  • Viewpoint -- The Viewpoint VM manages only a single Teradata system.

An Intel SR1625 VMS is available in a System VMS configuration. Each Intel SR1625 VMS manages one 670C or 670H system and consists of:

  • CMIC, SWS, and Viewpoint VMs. The SWS VM can manage a system with up to 64 disk arrays (12 processing/storage cabinets).
  • Two Intel 2.4 GHz quad-core CPUs
  • 24 GB memory using 4 GB DIMMs
  • Two 300 GB RAID 1 drives for boot/system operations
  • Two 600 GB RAID 1 drives for Viewpoint data storage
  • Onboard connectivity to server management network
  • Onboard or adapter connectivity to customer network
  • OS:
    • Linux SLES 11 OS on VMS and CMIC VM
    • Linux SLES 10 SP3 OS on SWS and Viewpoint VMs

An Intel R1208 VMS is available in a System VMS configuration. Each Intel R1208 VMS manages one 670C or 670H system and consists of:

  • CMIC, SWS, and Viewpoint VMs
  • Two 2.0 GHz six-core 15MB L3 cache E5-2620 processors, dual socket
  • 64 GB memory using 8 GB DIMMs

Server Management Web (SMWeb) Services Server management functions run on the CMIC VM (on a VMS). One CMIC VM is designated as the single operational view (SOV) CMIC. The SOV CMIC hosts the SMWeb Services Home page and provides applications and services for server management on an MPP system:
  • Server Management Client: Monitor status, display events, and perform commands from a single operational view of the system.
  • Command Line Interface: Download remote command line interface utilities
  • Save and Restore: Download, upload, and view configuration files
  • Users and Groups: Manage user and group security levels
  • Network, Devices, and CMICs: Configure the server management network and device management
  • TVI Connection: Configure settings for TVI data communications to Teradata via the Service Workstation

For use by customer on-site staff members, Teradata Services Analysts in the Global Support Center (GSC), and Teradata Customer Service Representatives.

SMWeb 10.01 and Teradata ServiceConnect are required for 670 systems.

For information about using SMWeb Services, see the Teradata Server Management Web Services User Guide, B035-5350, or the online help on the SMWeb Services home page.

Enterprise Service Workstation (SWS) Teradata Dell R720 or R710 workstation dedicated to system servicing and maintenance. Systems with an SR1625 System VMS and more than 64 disk arrays, or an R1208 System VMS and more than 128 disk arrays, require dedicated Enterprise SWS hardware (rather than a VMS with an SWS virtual machine). For systems that use dedicated Enterprise SWS hardware, the SWS hardware resides in a TMS cabinet.
  • Adapter connection to server management network
  • SLES 10 SP3 operating system
The level of service depends on the service agreement between Teradata and the customer.
Enterprise Viewpoint Server Teradata Dell R720 or R710 server that hosts the Viewpoint portal that contains portlets for customer management of the Teradata Database. Systems with more than 128 nodes require dedicated Enterprise Viewpoint hardware (rather than a VMS with a Viewpoint virtual machine). For systems that use dedicated Enterprise Viewpoint hardware, the Viewpoint hardware can reside in a TMS cabinet.
  • Adapter connection to server management network
  • SLES 10 SP3 operating system
Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) Console One KVM supports one to three 670C or 670H systems in any combination. The KVM has VGA and USB connections to the VMS.
Cable Management
