Before setting up Viewpoint alerts, make sure you have:
Installed a Teradata Viewpoint server and connected it to your system.
Enabled the RSS data collection system on your Teradata system.
Created the Teradata Viewpoint server logon user (viewpoint) in the database and given
it the privileges necessary to logon and execute database monitoring and management
Configured at least one administrative user to access and administer Teradata Viewpoint
and enabled the Viewpoint data collectors.
See the Teradata Viewpoint Configuration Guide for instructions.
You can configure Teradata Viewpoint to perform alert actions when the database achieves
or exceeds certain defined thresholds. You can specify the following alert actions
individually or in any combination:
Write a message to the alert log
Send an email message to a specified address
Communicate the alert to a specified third-party application
Run a specified BTEQ script or other program
Each alert action set has a unique name and is triggered according to the rules for
any alert that specifies the action set name.
