  • 1.  String Metric Age out?

    Posted 02-02-2018 09:48 AM

    Do string viewer or text metrics follow same age out rules as configured in smartstor tier properties?


    I ran a report containing string metrics and many of the values are blank. Since the report picked it up I assume the metric was populated at one point but now has aged out. How can I determine when metric was last populated?

    Hi Jordan,


    String/text metrics are not persisted to the database they are only present when the agent is active and reporting them.


    hope this help

    This does help. So once the source stops publishing a string metric it will no longer show in Investigator?

    Correct; they made the decision when the product was developed not to store string data since it can take up a lot of room and affect performance.
