In your existing TM1 world, much of the administration is done via your computer’s operating system. Planning Analytics brings a great deal of the administration into your environment via a web-based interface. One of the tasks you can do in this interface is to create and define email alerts.
In an earlier Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks blog post, I discussed the ability to define admin alerts. One of the alerts is associated with a critical database health. But what does “critical” mean? Planning Analytics allows you to define that yourself within the administration screen.
To access the administration screen, click on the Administration option at the top right corner of your screen (note that this will only appear if you have Admin permissions).
Once inside the administration portal, select the option for Databases, Configuration.
Within the configuration settings window you can then select Threshold and expand the Database usage section.
This screen allows you to define traffic lighting for green, yellow and red status of both your CPU usage and your Memory usage. The results of these settings are used on the main database screen (the colors associated with the server box) and in the alerts section (notifications for critical database health).
This approach within Planning Analytics allows your system administrator to have quick and automated ways to monitor your server status.
