In a Teradata Alerts cluster configuration:
- Two Teradata Viewpoint servers are configured
- Active messaging services run on both servers using a networked configuration
- Active alert services run on both servers in the cluster
- The secondary alert service and messaging service automatically take over if the active counterpart fails
For ease of understanding, the Teradata Viewpoint components of the Teradata Viewpoint server are omitted from the Teradata Alerts cluster diagrams.
