User Guide

The Alerts view allows users to view triggered alerts and are specific to your system. The summary table displays a list of all alerts generated in a designated time period, or can be filtered to display only the alerts of a selected severity level. The information in the view is refreshed every 60 seconds.

An alert is an event that the Teradata System Administrator defines as being significant. The Teradata System Administrator assigns alert severity levels to rank alerts, and can also include an explanatory message. Following are the severity levels:
  • Critical
  • High
  • Medium
  • Low

The timestamp in this view updates when the number of alerts changes.

Alert Example

The Teradata System Administrator can define that a database exceeding a certain amount of storage usage triggers an alert. After the usage level is exceeded, an alert appears in the Alerts view to inform the user that the threshold was exceeded.

You can change a setting so hidden alerts display. For more information, see Displaying Hidden Alerts.
