VROPs 6.1.0.3038036 Dynamic Thresholds calculation or it seems that makes Analytics unavailable

Hi all,

VROPs 6.1.0.3038036 Dynamic Thresholds calculation or it seems that makes Analytic's unavailable

My VROPs Analytics seems to start up every morning at 6am.

I also noticed that i do not have any collected data between 2am and 6am every day.

Is it supposed to do this and if so, is it possible to stop it or schedule it for once a week?

I do not have any other schedules or tasks running at all.

Losing data seems to be the main issue so i would like to fix it asap.

This is the only indication that i might think that the calculation os the cause.

Next calculation planned for: Mar 25, 2016 2:00:35 AM

Thanks!

Otto

Can you explain a little further on what you mean by "VROPs Analytics seems to start up every morning at 6am".  Do you mean that you see a gap in data that seems to "fix" itself each day at 6am, or is there something else leading to this conclusion?

Also, how is your vROps environment architected?  How many data nodes, remote collectors, and if you have RC's, where are they located?

If you find this or any other answer useful please mark the answer as correct or helpful https://communities.vmware.com/people/greco827/blog

Is it possible you have a Maintenance Schedule defined?

If you set a Maint Schedule and apply it to a policy it will not collect metrics for that period.

The CPU utilization drops to almost nothing from 2am to 6am. When i get to the Office and log on after 6am (06h15), then i see the Cluster showing, "Waiting for Analytics"

Has anyone been able to figure out what this is and how to possibly change the daily to a weekly?
