Configuring the Agent Manager : Troubleshooting : Resolving DATA_COLLECTION_FAILED errors

Credentials that are used by host agents to monitor remote hosts can have a Use Count policy configured through the Management Server browser interface. In such cases, when the number of collections exceeds the Use Count number, the host agent fails and enters the DATA_COLLECTION_FAILED mode. A Use Count policy violation event is also generated on the Management Server and can be viewed in the Monitor Credential Alarms dashboard.
Delete the Use Count policy associated with the credential, through the Management Server browser interface (Dashboards > Credentials > Manage Credentials > Edit > Policies). For more information about credential management, see the Foglight Administration and Configuration Guide.

Configuring the Agent Manager : Troubleshooting : Adjusting the maximum polling interval

The Maximum Number of Polls (per minute) property sets the maximum number of polls that Foglight accepts from Agent Manager instances per minute.
In environments with a large number of Agent Manager instances, running Foglight with the default value of 500 for Maximum Number of Polls (per minute) can increase Agent Manager communication latency to unacceptable levels.
To adjust the Maximum Number of Polls (per minute) setting, in the Foglight browser interface, navigate to Administration > Agents > Agent Properties > FglAM > FglAMAdapter.
