How long is the monitoring information saved for?

  • If I am monitoring system performance how long is the information retained? When I run a report on the monitoring set for say the last 30 days I get different time frames for each counter in the set. One counter may only show information for the past 2 days while another counter in the same mon set will show info for the past 10 days, and another counter might show for the past 20 days all on the same server.

    Does anyone have a solid answer for why so much difference and how can I get better historical reporting?

    Thanks

  • I think Kaseya wil hold 2000 entries of logs available for every counter. So you can increase your interval to get more historical data.

  • Is this 2000 limit configurable or hard-coded?

  • I believe you can change it in SQL, but I don't know where.

    I have never liked this limit. I personally would like it configurable. How much DB space does a single line entry take? A few bytes? What is 2000 entries? Most likely less than 1mb.

    Personally I would like to set it to keep everything for 6 months. Then after 6 months it could truncate it down to24 entries per day, and keep these for 1 year. This would allow us to really see utilization over time.

  • Far182, I have been asking for this since monitoring was in beta. I went to look at bandwidth utilization for a client last week and found just six days of data. Kaseya partners, if log trending and analysis is important to you, send an enhancement request to support@kaseya.comand let them know.

  • It is actually 2,500 data points. So depending on how far apart you have your collection interval, will determine how long of a history you have. For example every 5 mins is roughly one week worth of data.

  • That doesn't apply to SNMP monitor sets, as you cannot specify an interval.

  • Not neccesarily true. If youtake a long running SNMP monitor set and count how many pages therearewhen displaying 100 rows, you will get a count of the data points. The one thing you will notice is that the SNMP data retrieval is not the same for every OID. Here is some examples:

    This is the tabular log file from a Sonicwall I monitor. This is the CPU log

    The total connections monitor set only goes back to 8am yesterday (the 6th) but the CPU log goes all the way back to the 20th of last month. It seems random (I know its not random just I havent seen the pattern yet) for every OID. Look around at your SNMP Logs and you will see you wont have no more that 20 - 25 pages (thought it was 2,500 but may be having a brain squirt) worth of 100 rows per page logs.
