Defining SLGs for Converted PDSets

To define service level goals for converted PDSets

1 In the SLG Recommendations dialog box, view the default parameters and resulting service level recommendations, along with the resulting chart.

2 Set the options as described in the table below.




SLG Parameters

Displays the service parameters that can be viewed or modified to generate Teradata WA SLG recommendations. Click a service parameter in the list or accept the default (Response Time) as appropriate.

When a listed parameter is selected:

  • that parameter appears as the horizontal axis of the chart
  • after selecting the Set Manual option, the value of all parameters can be edited in the SLG Recommendations window
  • Changing the setting prompts Teradata WA to update the graph immediately.


    Displays the available operating environments. Click an operating environment in the list box or accept Always as appropriate.

    Changing the setting prompts Teradata WA to update the graph immediately.

    Set Manually

    Click this check box (cleared by default) to modify the recommended service levels.

    Recommended SLG

    When setting levels manually, you can change the selected service parameter’s recommended value (shown highlighted in white). No other values are available for edited (shown shaded).

    Arrival rate, Response Time, Throughput and Service Percent appear. The response time goal shown is the value that would satisfy a 80% goal.

    Recommend on current Service percent

    Displays the current performance baseline that Teradata WA automatically uses for determining service level recommendations. You can adjust this as appropriate.

    Factor by

    Modifies the SLG parameter, with a factor of 1 being the same as today, 0.1 being 10 times faster than today, 10.0 being 10 times slower than today.
