.NET Agent Not Returning Performance Traces
The behaviour they report is very likely the result of the "Event Throttling" feature of the AVIcode Agent.
Here's one entry from the event log for host:
Event Type: Information
Event Source: FLDN Instrumentation
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1001
Time: 3:44:04 AM
Event Throttling Mode is enabled. This mode sets a threshold for the number of events collected. This mode may be changed via the Quest Foglight for .NET Agent Management Console. Review the User Manual for more details.
From the Avicode help file, here's a description of this feature:
"Enable/Disable System Event Throttling
The 'Enable Event Throttling' checkbox on the General tab allows you to constrain the rate at which events are collected to improve system performance. Events are constrained by the number of events collected in an event group over time. You can throttle events to the guaranteed maximum event rate per minute by setting the checkbox.
The best practice is to keep throttling enabled on a production server. To remove throttling, clear the checkbox. "
We would still suggest keeping it enabled, as disabling it can potentially overload the FMS with too many traces.
