The System Health portlet monitors the status and key metrics of all monitored systems against defined thresholds. This portlet reports status with customized states or the following default states: healthy, degraded, critical, down, or unknown. The portlet also uses customized or default tooltips. These states and tooltips enable you to investigate metrics exceeding healthy thresholds.
The Teradata Viewpoint Administrator enables system health metrics, configures the degraded and critical thresholds, and customizes the states and tooltips for your system in the Monitored Systems portlet. The metrics and thresholds are usually selected to highlight an unusual load on the system that has the potential to impact overall performance.
