Teradata Server Management Web Services (SMWeb) provides the ability to monitor and administer components managed within a single server management network (that is, the server management domain) as well as the individual systems within. A system is a group of Linux nodes, associated storage, and other hardware used to host an instance of Teradata Database, an Aster Database cluster, or a Hadoop Distributed File System cluster.

SMWeb is designed to be used by on-site customer staff, Teradata Services Analysts in the Global Support Center (GSC), and Teradata Customer Service Representatives.

SMWeb consolidates the functionality for Server Management Client (SMClient), CMIC Web pages, Command-Line Interface (CLI) utilities, security, and other features on one home page. SMWeb interfaces display the information provided by server management. Server management consists of the server management chassis (CMIC) hardware and software (including SMWeb), and networking components that support server management operations.
