The alert setup defines alert notification parameters and alert actions.

See Teradata Viewpoint User Guide for procedure details.

  1. From the main Teradata Viewpoint portal, select Admin > Setup.
  2. Use Delivery Settings/Email to configure communication with the host SMTP email server.
  3. Select the Teradata system for which you are configuring the alert.
  4. Use Alerts Presets/Action Sets to set up common alert actions, for example, an email message to all administrative users. Then you can set up monitoring parameters that invoke the associated alert action whenever Teradata Viewpoint detects that a parameter was exceeded.
    Specifying one or more roles in the action sends an email to each role member and is the most efficient way of identifying email recipients. You can list email addresses for any recipients that are not Teradata Viewpoint users.
