The gateway software is the interface between the network and Teradata Database. It runs on the Teradata Database server as a separate operating system task. Client sessions that communicate through the gateway to Teradata Database are installed and running on workstations.
In contrast, sessions originating from a mainframe-attached system access Teradata Database through mainframe connections and TDP software and bypass the gateway completely.
The following table describes tools available to administer your gateway.
|Gateway Control utility||gtwcontrol||Recommended for use only by Teradata field support engineers to.

|Gateway Global utility||gtwglobal||
|Data Dictionary table||DBC.EventLog||The table logs entries for logon and logoff events found by session control, including logon failures detected external to session control (such as when the Gateway receives an authentication failure).|
