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. For example  aborting a query or changing the workload for a query on a Teradata DB system.


The Viewpoint Dashboard (released with Viewpoint 15.11) is designed to give you an at-a-glance overview of monitored systems while you perform your everyday tasks. If something catches your eye you can quickly switch to the Dashboard for a system and begin a more in-depth investigation.

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.

This blog discusses tips, tricks, and use cases for Teradata Viewpoint's "Rewind" feature. Hopefully this blog will give you some new ideas on more efficient navigation and different ways of utilizing rewind that you may have overlooked in the past.  

Is there an IDE that can be used to develop portlets for Viewpoint?  Ideally one that will allow full interactive debugging rather than just a coding environment.  I've installed the portlet PDK stuff and that's working fine (depsite looking like a fairly hairy installation process!), and I've got a VMWare TD 13.10 image I'm going to try and configure wit

Teradata Data Mover (version 13.10) introduced job level security management which allows users to specify access rights at job level. Through the Teradata Data Mover Portlet, a Viewpoint user with access to Data Mover Portlet can grant/revoke access rights of individual Data Mover job to other Viewpoint users with access to Data Mover portlet. 

Teradata Data Mover (version 13.10) introduced a graphical user interface component (Portlets) that allows users a more intuitive way to copy database objects from one Teradata database system to another. The Portlet component compliments and enhances the existing ‘command line’ component. It is deployed on Teradata Viewpoint Web portal & gives users an opportunity to manage Data Mover jobs from the convenience of a Web browser. 

Teradata is very pleased to announce the official release of the new product offering called Teradata Data Lab. At this same time, Teradata is releasing the new Teradata Viewpoint 14.00 version. These are two separate offerings just released in the same timeframe as a matter of convenience.

This blog post provides an explanation of Viewpoint portlet date/time stamp behavior. The rationale for the blog post is that often new customers conclude that their portlets are not working correctly as the time stamp does not match the current time or rewind time. So let's do a quick review on the intent of the portlet time stamp.

Teradata is pleased to announce the official release of Teradata Viewpoint 13.12 effective August 26th, 2011.

Yet another blog in the series of cool Viewpoint features. This blog however combines Viewpoint cool features with a basis on a true customer analysis success story. The resulting customer feedback was that Viewpoint allowed much quicker problem analysis and resolution.

Hi Guys,

Our portlet has to store a considerably large amount of data. Is there a way to "create" a custom table in the Postgres SQL DB for storing this Data. And afterwards be able to query this table and also do inserts and updates?


Q1. We have a specific requirement... Our Portlet has to communicate with a Java Socket Server OR a Java RMI Server... Is this doable, I mean can we open a socket connection or an RMI connection from inside a portlet's java classes?


We need each VP user to be able to store his very own portlet preferences values
in a custom developed VP portlet .
Like each user needs to configure his own personal database-login in the preferences.

The problem right now is that as soon as user 'A' changes the values of the his own preferences to his own
personal settings, his settings are somehow distributed to all other vp users too.

So next time when user 'B' looks at his preferences settings he will see the personal
preferences settings of user 'A' , instead of his own user 'B' preferences settings.

There are a number of factors that contribute to performance aspects of Teradata Viewpoint and enough to warrant an article on this subject. So if you are looking for improved Viewpoint responsiveness and snappier portlet refreshes, consider the aspects covered in this article.

Hi All,
I looked into this jira http://developer.teradata.com/viewpoint/reference/how-to-create-a-controller-for-a-refreshed-parameterized-page for inserting a back button arrow into my portlet. It says that I must include the following lines of code into the drilldown jsp.

Today in Viewpoint, one has two options for viewing of session/query information. The MyQueries portlet allows a user to see their queries even for varying Teradata logins across different Teradata systems. There is also the Query Monitor portlet that allows one to see all the queries on a system with various sorting and filtering options.


The Teradata Viewpoint patch bundle is available on the patch server effective June 28th, 2010. We don't normally publish Viewpoint articles on patch releases but this one has some significance worth noting so please read on.

The Viewpoint patch release addresses three items worth mentioning.

Welcome back to the series of blogs on cool Viewpoint features. Hopefully by now, you've heard about the Teradata "time travel" feature called rewind. Rewind allows one to easily and seamlessly view portlet data and interactions by going back in time for analysis, comparison, or just general reporting.

Personal Workspace Template aka Elastic Marts Builder has been discontinued.  For further information check here.

Hey everyone,

I'm in the midst of creating a new Viewpoint article discussing getting started with Viewpoint and what portlets are most often used as a starting dashboard for various Teradata user roles. So questions like, "if I was to share Viewpoint with our Business Users, which portlets would I want to allow them to use?" or "As a DBA, what are the most logical portlets to start with?". So the article is going to try and provide some insight for those whom have questions like that.

A bug fix patch for Elastic Marts Builder (version 0.9.1) is now available.  This release addresses an installation issue and various issues with file validation.  You can download the latest version here.

The following article displays in a diagram all the major parts of a portlet.

It can be helpful to see the directory layout of a portlet.  Here is an example using the Hello portlet.

This checklist is meant to be a guide of best practices for portlet designers and developers. Complying with all of these items will ensure that your portlet maintains a consistent look and feel, and performs well within the Viewpoint portal.

Teradata Viewpoint is a web portal that is a container for portlets. A portlet is a self-contained component that a portal user can display on one of their portal pages.

This tutorial describes how to deploy a portlet into the Viewpoint Development Portal.

In the spirit of "Tis better to give than receive" comes the next blog on cool Viewpoint features, that being the ability to "share" a portlet. The shared portlets feature captures a customized version of a portlet and allows it to be shared as a distinct portlet for use by other Viewpoint users.

After a spectacular Teradata Partners Conference, I'm back to do another cool Viewpoint features blog. I want to start out on this one with a little background on how this feature came about. In our first two Viewpoint releases, we focused on Teradata Management and Teradata Self Service aspects.

This is the second in the series of blogs regarding cool features and tidbits within Teradata Viewpoint. Today's discussion is going to focus on SQL Scratchpad, a new Self Service portlet released with Viewpoint 13.0.1 in June 2009.

As the Product Manager for Viewpoint, I have the distinct pleasure of discussing, presenting, and demonstrating the extensive feature content to account teams, partners, and customers. My thanks goes out to the Viewpoint Engineering team in providing lots for me to talk about ... And learn.
