0 - 6 of 6 tags for Node

Can somebody explain AMPless Node, PE only Node, FiCon node?
What is their purpose and how they affect overall capacity of TD?

Alternate Title: Teradata 101. For anyone new to Teradata, this session is to acquaint you with the Teradata technology.

In my organisation, there are 6 Nodes used and each node carry 24 AMPs.
Could any one please let me know how to determine how many Number of AMPs are required per node ? 
If More Number of AMPs / Nodes are supposed to increase Performance , Why its not true to have Maximum number of Amps / Nodes ?

Hello All,
The way I see Teradata is...Node contains multiple PE & AMPs. PE handles the user sessions in addition to other activities and AMPs service the data movement amongst other role. Considering a production system having say, 50 Nodes...I seek clarification on the following 02 topics:

As part of the Viewpoint 15.00 release, the Viewpoint team built a brand new version of the Node Resources portlet.  The primary purpose of this portlet continues to be to identify skew on a Teradata Database system.  The original incarnation of this portlet required a fair amount of manual intervention in order to achieve this goal.  The new version of this portlet includes a simpler user interface and a new algorithm to identify skewed resources (or “outliers”) automatically.

What is the common configuration/specifiction of a Teradata Node?
