A Teradata Viewpoint alert is based on:
- A threshold specified for a monitoring parameter, for example, when a database exceeds 95% space usage.
- The time period during which the parameter must be over threshold to invoke the alert.
- A definition of who should receive the alert and how the message is delivered.
- A message that the system delivers to the list of users defined in the Action Set, if the threshold and time criteria are met.
Using the Alert Setup portlet in Teradata Viewpoint, you can customize the type of alerts you want to receive. For details and options, see Teradata® Viewpoint User Guide, B035-2206.
