The data collection from all endpoints is scheduled to run at default intervals, which you can modify by updating the respective job property.

Following table lists the jobs from all endpoints, the job properties and their default intervals that you can modify for data collection.

Note

You can use the update-config.py utility to modify these intervals by running the command in the following format.

./update-config.py key Value

For example, to run the storage data collection every hour, run the following command in the Shell prompt:

./update-config.py dc.job.interval.vc.tags 60

For more information about how to use the update-config.py utility, see View and Update vRealize Business for Cloud Default Settings.

Note

To run a data collection process immediately, click Status and click the Update Now option next to the respective process.

If a failure occurs during the data collection process, vRealize Business for Cloud retries to run the process maximum of five times, by default. Use the update-config.py utility to modify the retry value for updating the dc.failed.job.max.retry.count parameter.

For example, dc.failed.job.max.retry.count = 3.

And by default, vRealize Business for Cloud takes two minutes interval to retry the process. Use the update-config.py utility to modify this value for updating the dc.failed.job.retry.period parameter.

For example, dc.failed.job.retry.period = 1.
