Foglight Hybrid Cloud Manager 1.6 - User Guide (for AWS environments)

Configuring data collection interval

Foglight Hybrid Cloud Manager enables you to configure the interval for data collection using the Agent Status dashboard.

On the navigation panel, under Dashboards, select Administration > Agents > Agent Status.
On the Agent Status dashboard, select the AWS agent that you want to monitor, and then click Edit Properties.
The Edit Properties view opens.
Select True for Collect Memory Metric and Collect Volume Metric, and then specify a value for Collection Interval Offset.
Quest highly recommends setting the Collector Config (also knowns as Collection interval) to a value greater than 10 minutes. If the Collection interval is less than 10 minutes, AWS agent cannot collect metrics from AWS Cloud Watch as AWS Cloud Watch has a 10-minute delay. If you insist on setting this interval less than 10 minutes, ensure the following:
Collection Interval Offset must be set to a non-negative integer.
n represents the value of Collection Interval Offset.
I represents the value of Collector Config (in minutes).
