Stress - Analysys window for interactive/batch workloads

Hello!

I am on a path of understanding really well vRealize Operations so I can make better use of the solution. In my studies I realized that the Stress badge is really important as it is used to calculate capacity/time remaining and all of those recommendations for oversized/undersized virtual machines.

So, out-of-the-box, the stress is calculated by looking for the worst hour in a 30 day window. So the analysys windows is one hour. If we change this window to a bigger size, we get a more normalized average (and maybe a lower score badge).

What I'm having trouble understanding is why an interactive workload (so, pretty constant but it may have spikes if there is too much requests) would require a one hour analysys windows and a batck workload would require a bigger window, let's say, 240 minutes windows.

Can someone explain to me the relation between type of workload and the size of analysys window?

Thanks!!

So apparently we don't have the stress badge anymore. vROPs 6.7 went on and simplified everything for us!
