Teradata Active System Management (Teradata ASM) is a set of products, including system tables and logs, that interact with each other and a common data source. It facilitates automation in the following four key areas of system management:

  • Workload Management
  • Performance Tuning
  • Capacity Planning
  • Performance Monitoring
  • Teradata ASM helps manage the system automatically and reduces the effort required by DBAs, application developers, and support personnel. With careful planning, Teradata ASM can improve and optimize your workload management and performance. It can also improve response times and ensure more consistent response times for critical work.

    Some of the products that make up the Teradata ASM solution include Viewpoint Workload Monitor/Health, Viewpoint Workload Designer, and Teradata Workload Analyzer.

    These components are graphically displayed in Figure 1.
