(CO) Support Tip: Recommended vCenter settings for optimal metrics collection by Cloud Optimizer

Hello CO Community,

As many of you know, there has been challenges with communication about what are the recommended configuration settings within CO for collection of VMware environments.  This involves no only settings within CO but also modifying settings within VMware and specifically the vCenter server.

There is a new knowledge document available that was written by Thierry Ledent that compiles all of the various items and information into a single location.

KM02945185 - Recommended settings for the vCenter (maxQueryMetrics, statistics levels, collectPreAggregatedIntervalFactor) for optimal metrics collection by Cloud Optimizer
https://softwaresupport.hp.com/km/KM02945185

This new document describes the recommended values and background information for the following vCenter settings:

  • config.vpxd.stats.maxQueryMetrics
  • Statistic Levels
  • config.vpxd.stats.collectPreAggregatedIntervalFactor

This document will hopefully help Cloud Optimizer admins to provide important information to the VMware admins who are reluctant to make any configuration changes to vCenter.

I hope that this information is helpful.

Have a great week!

Regards,

Mark
