Mainframe Connection Tools
The following tools monitor session and TDP activity on mainframe-connected clients.
HSI timestamp - Host System Interface (HSI) timestamps tell you when TDP receives
a request, when the request parcel is sent to or queued for Teradata Database, and
when the response parcel is received from Teradata Database.
TDPUTCE - TDP User Transaction Collection Exit (TDPUTCE) collects statistics about
all of the requests and responses controlled by the TDP, including user, session/request
parcels, timestamps, request type, and request/response parcels.
Your site is responsible for processing and analyzing the data collected by TDPUTCE.
z/OS System Management Facility (SMF) is a feature in the z/OS operating system that
can record accounting and performance information, such as:
Statistical information about the processing activity of a PE recorded at shutdown.
Log-off session information.
Logon violations and security violations records.
Statistical data about the processing activity of the TDP, recorded at shutdown.
Statistical information about the processing activity of a Channel Processor (CP)
either recorded at shutdown or started with the Channel Communication Unit (CCU) operand.
For more information on TDP, see Teradata Director Program Reference.
