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

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.
