Teradata recommends the following best practices for states and events:
  • Start with a Base state for normal operating conditions and a degraded health condition state for controlling excessive concurrency that has lasted for at least 10 minutes
  • After creating a new state, you should review the state-specific values of your filters and throttles.
  • Reuse states if possible. Defining too many states may become a maintenance burden.
  • Keep in mind that multiple planned environments may be active at the same time, for example, Weekend and Daytime. TASM evaluates planned environments from right to left, so if you want a planned environment to take precedence when more than one could apply, drag that planned environment to the right of the other planned environments in the States area of the Viewpoint Workload Designer toolbar.
