Workload Designer can generate alerts for either an event or an exception.
  • Events can be:
    • Planned or scheduled, such as a weekend time period begins
    • Unplanned, such as a node going down
  • Exceptions are generated when a query exceeds some user-defined threshold.

TDWM generates the alerts using the DBCMNGR.AlertRequest table, using the same mapping as the Alert Request data collector. The contents of the jobName, message, and description columns are specified by the TDWM software.

The table below illustrates the mapping.
