Summary

Introduced in Viewpoint 15.11, Viewpoint Mobile is a new way of monitoring and managing your Teradata systems using an interface optimized for smaller devices. Viewpoint Mobile is designed to pull together the most relevant data and features from the System Health, Query Monitor, Alert Viewer, Metrics Analysis, and SQL Scratchpad portlets in order to support system monitoring and management while on the go. Whether you have Teradata, Aster, or Hadoop systems, Viewpoint Mobile allows you to monitor the health of those systems and to perform common management tasks.

A common discussion around Teradata Viewpoint is whether one Viewpoint appliance is enough. Consider a significant advantage of Teradata Viewpoint is its ability to manage multiple Teradata systems even if those systems are running different Teradata Database versions, on different Teradata platforms, and even with different underlying Operating Systems. That being the case, wouldn't one Viewpoint appliance be sufficient? Maybe not ... so let's discuss the factors that may drive consideration of having more than one Teradata Viewpoint appliance at your site.
