The Distribution view displays active workload resource consumption in an interactive graphical format.

Toolbar
Navigation Icons: You can click them to access the summary views.
Ruleset: Displays the name of the active ruleset.
State Matrix: Shows the changes in state, planned environment, or health condition during the cumulative sampling time frame. In SLES 11, you can view details about the current state and previous states.
Bars for SLES 10
You can see two bar charts that display actual system resource consumption compared to allocated system resources. Hover over any workload or AG name to see the relationship between the two. Mouse over the bar to see a balloon with more AG data. You can click any workload or AG name other than TASM Unused/Idle or System to go to another view:
  • CPU By Workload: Displays the percentage of system CPU used by each workload that was active within the sampling time frame. Click a workload to access the workload details view.
  • Relative Weight: Displays the system resources allocated to an AG. Every AG is associated with a relative weight that tells Teradata Priority Scheduler the priority of access to CPU for the requests running under that AG.
Bars for SLES 11
You can see two bar charts that compare system resource consumption by virtual partition or by workload.
  • CPU By Virtual Partition: Displays the percentage of system CPU used by each virtual partition that was active within the sampling time frame. Click a virtual partition to access the Distribution details view.
  • CPU By Workload: Displays the percentage of system CPU used by each workload that was active within the sampling time frame. Hover over a bar to see the percentage of partition CPU used by that workload. Click a workload to access the workload details view.
CPU Consumption or I/O Consumption toggles the consumption data for the sampling time frame.
Sampling Time Frame Control
Filters the system information for the selected sampling time frame.
