There was a recent question thread about how you can tweak the OS analytics settings in Ops Center.
"Ops Center collects analytics data every 5 minutes and retains it for 5 days. Is it possible to edit these settings?"
You can edit the retention period but not the collection interval.
To edit the retention period, log into the UI. Click the Administration section, then click the Configuration tab for the EC, and select the Report Service subsystem.
The repsvc.daily-samples-retention-days property specifies the number of days to retain OS analytics data. You can edit this property, then restart the EC to make it take effect.
"Can I turn off data collection for OS analytics entirely?"
Yes, you can. Bear in mind that this requires you to edit a config file, so be very careful.
Go to the /opt/sun/n1gc/lib directory on the EC and find the XVM_SATELLITE.properties file. Edit it to uncomment this line:
Then, restart the Enterprise Controller.
