vCentre Collection Time

We run a multi node cluster of vROps 7.0 in our environment and I have noticed lately that there are often data points missing in objects throughout the day.

In troubleshooting, I have noticed that the average data collection time for the vCenter adapter is 4.2 Min and sometimes runs higher.  I think this would explain the missing collection points as the current data collection goes beyond 5 mins and then the next point is missing.

I have looked both the vCenter Appliance and the vROps performance and do not see anything that would cause any collection slowness.  Average Disk MS is below 10 ms, proc is 30-40% Memory is not constrained.

Node sizing is appropriate as well for the number of objects and metrics and the collection time is consistent at 4.x mins.

Any thoughts from anyone?

Cheers,

Can you check the self health dashboard of the vRops nodes to see if they are healthy?

Also can you provide some screenshots of the missing data points?

What version are your vcenters and are there any tags in use?  We have seen longer collection times due to vrops trying to collect vsphere tags.  Even disabling tag collections in the vrops policy does not stop the vcenter adapter from trying to collect tags every 5 minutes.
