The Today's Statistics portlet allows you to monitor current resource-use statistics and compare them to statistics collected during the same period one or more weeks in the past. Additionally, you can monitor and compare the performance of multiple Teradata Database systems by adding a Today's Statistics portlet to the portal page for each monitored system.
The Teradata Viewpoint Administrator typically uses the Today's Statistics portlet to determine if users are getting value from their Teradata Database system. Data is presented in a table, allowing you to compare metric values collected recently (today and as far in the past as yesterday) to values collected during the same time period up to 999 weeks in the past. This view is refreshed every 2 minutes with displayed values updated for each user-selected metric.
