The SkewedSessions portlet displays skewed active sessions for any AMP that is causing a system-wide skew.

This portlet demonstrates:

The following tutorial provides a step-by-step demonstration of how to generate the SkewedSessions portlet and modify the generated source files to display skewed session data.

 If you have a portlet developed for Viewpoint 12.0, here are the steps you'll need to take in order to get it working correctly under Viewpoint 13.0.

The following series of articles describe how to upgrade your Viewpoint portlet developed to run on a previous version of the portal to a newer version of the portal.

 If you have a portlet developed for Viewpoint 13.0, here are the steps you'll need to take in order to get it working correctly under Viewpoint 13.0.1.

The following series of articles describe how to create models, controllers, and views within a portlet.  They also describe how to use built in Viewpoint facilities such as Rewind, Validation, etc..

Below are a series of tutorials that show you step by step how to deploy and modify the sample portlets included in the Viewpoint PDK.

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

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. 

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.

The Teradata Agile Analytic Cloud allows business users and developers to easily allocate an elastic data mart (i.e. a database) inside the Teradata System.

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.

The Rewind feature in Teradata Viewpoint allows the user to examine the state of a Teradata system at an arbitrary point in the past. In this video, Teradata Viewpoint engineer Kurt Jackson provides a quick (1 min, 40 sec) overview of the Rewind functionality.


The Filtered Queries portlet in Teradata Viewpoint 13.0.1 allows the end user to see a view of the queries running on a Teradata system, filtered by query state. In this video, Teradata Viewpoint engineer Kurt Jackson provides a quick (2 min) overview of the Filtered Queries portlet functionality.


While writing my first article it occured to me that I was delving into a large subject area that wasn't really addressed by the four subjects currently available.

These are:

  • Viewpoint (is that the software or opinions?)
  • Database
  • UDF
  • General

Well, I guess it could have gone into general, but to me that sounds like "everything else that isn't worthy of having its own subject area". And that wasn't a very appealing category for my first article.

Teradata Viewpoint Portlet Development Kit (PDK) is the starting point for building portlets for the Viewpoint platform. The PDK is a set of APIs, user interface widgets, styles and other assets that allow you to develop portlets for Teradata Viewpoint. It also contains documentation, code samples, how-to's and other reference materials to help with that endeavor..
