Metric timeouts

    Can someone tell me how long it takes before a metric's data "falls off" a dashboard? More specifically, I am using an perl script through the EPA to supply some specific data. I am trying to figure out how often to fire the script to supply the workstation with data. The script is kind of busy, so I don't want to run it too often, but I don't want the data to vanish from the dashboard either.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can enable this property to enable your plugin to report zeros:


    This property is used to determine what happens if a stateless plugin stops reporting


    ■ same - continue to report same value (until metric is aged out)
    ■ zero - report metric with value 0 (if metric type is stringevent or timestamp, action 'same' is performed)
    ■ stop - stop reporting metric value

    Follow up question. After changing or adding that particular parameter, do you need to restart the EPA agent or will the change be picked up at some point?

    You'll want to restart EPA.
