BNA historical data aging - v12.4 & v14.1

  • 1.  BNA historical data aging - v12.4 & v14.1

    Posted 06-01-2017 10:00 AM

    BNA v12.0 had the ability through the SMC to change the granuality of the historic data kept over 2 years.  There were two options.  

     

    Reviewing BNA v12.4 and v14.1 I now see that this option has been removed from the SMC!  I do see that the DB does have a table with the following options.  

     

    TABLE 568 STATS_AGING > POLICY_TYPE

    The type of the aging ploicy.

    • 100 - Default aging (1 day 5 mins samples, 3 days 30 mins samples, 7 days 2 hrs sample and 2 years 1 day samples)
    • 101 - 5 mins to 1 day aging (8 days 5 mins samples and 90 days of 1 day samples)

     

     Where can I change the aging options?

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

     

    in the 14.0.1 PDF manual at

     

    https://www.brocade.com/content/dam/common/documents/content-types/user-guide/networkadvisor-1401-san-manual.pdf

     

    under "Configuring custom duration for performance aging" (pdf page 1237) we have

     

    NOTE: Changes to the custom duration for performance aging automatically trigger a Management application server restart.

     

    This batch file enables you to set a custom duration for performance aging. You cannot select the maximum limit which is as follows:

    5 minute granularity for last 8 days

    30 minutes granularity for last 30 days

    2 hour granularity for last 30 days

    1 day granularity for last 730 days (2 years)

     

    To configure custom duration for performance aging, complete the following steps.

    On Windows systems, complete the following steps.

    a. Open a command prompt and navigate to the Install_Home\utilities directory.

    b. Set a custom duration for performance aging by typing performanceaginglimit.bat dbusername dbpassword and

    pressing Enter.

    c. Enter the number of days for the custom duration by typing number_of_days at the Enter number of days prompt and

    pressing Enter.

    d. Continue by typing y at the Do you want to continue(Y/N) prompt and pressing Enter.

     

    The Management application server restarts automatically.

     

    On UNIX systems, complete the following steps.

    a. Open a terminal and navigate to the Install_Home\utilities directory.

    b. Set a custom duration for performance aging by typing performanceaginglimit dbusername dbpassword and

    pressing Enter.

    c. Enter the number of days for the custom duration by typing number_of_days at the Enter number of days prompt and

    pressing Enter.

    d. Continue by typing y at the Do you want to continue(Y/N) prompt and pressing Enter.

     

    The Management application server restarts automatically.

     

     

    So, you have to use provide bat / script file to change the aging.
