Configuring Statistics Settings

To set up how statistical data is recorded, you configure statistics intervals.

■
| Statistic intervals determine the frequency at which statistic queries occur, the length of time statistical data is stored in the database, and the type of statistical data collected. |

■
| Enabling a statistics interval increases the number of statistics stored in the vCenter Server database. Disabling a statistics interval disables all subsequent intervals and decreases the number of statistics stored in the vCenter Server database. |

■
| The impact of the statistics collection on your vCenter Server database is based on the current vCenter Server and inventory size. |
