Endpoint data collection runs automatically every 4 hours, but IaaS administrators can manually start endpoint data collection at any time for endpoints that do not require proxy agents.

The Data Collection page provides information on the status and age of data collections and allows you to manually start a new endpoint data collection.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as an IaaS administrator.


Select Infrastructure > Endpoints > Endpoints.


Point to the endpoint for which you want to run data collection and click Data Collection.


Click Start.


(Optional) Click Refresh to receive an updated message about the status of the data collection you initiated.


Click Cancel to return to the Endpoints page.
