The Performance Data Collection portlet uses jobs to collect performance data from Teradata database sources. This data can then be used to generate performance analysis reports.

The following are just a few of the features of Performance Data Collection:
  • Collect data automatically within specific time frames. For example, Session data is collected every 10 minutes, and Accounting data is collected every hour.
  • Create alerts to notify when a job fails or a database threshold has been met.

The Performance Data Collection portlet displays data in two views. The summary view shows a summary of all jobs and current information for any jobs that are enabled. This top-level view for the portlet refreshes every 30 seconds. The details view displays detailed information on a selected job, such as status and information about the tables of data included in the job. This view shows completed information and is not refreshed unless the selected job is currently in progress.

Supported versions of Teradata Database are 15.0 and later. Aster and Hadoop systems are not supported.
