Teradata Vantage™

The gateway software is the interface between the network and Vantage. It runs on the server as a separate operating system task. Client sessions that communicate through the gateway to Vantage are installed and running on workstations.

In contrast, sessions originating from a mainframe-attached system access Vantage through mainframe connections and TDP software and bypass the gateway completely.

The following table describes tools available to administer your gateway.

Tool Name Function
Gateway Control utility gtwcontrol Recommended for use only by Teradata field support engineers to.
  • Determine the format of some user names

  • Control gateway resource usage.
