Indicator parameters are named values associated with systems or business drivers and are automatically computed by the auto forecasting service. These values are ultimately derived from BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization metrics. Use this screen to configure definition parameters for indicators. For more information, refer to the following section.
To set global Indicator Parameter values in the console
Navigate to Administration > Resource Monitor > Indicator Parameters.
The Parameters section displays preset global values for indicator parameters. To modify these values, click Edit and enter values for the following parameters:
Indicators and Parameters Default value & unit Days to saturation Minimum number of days needed to calculate trends 5 days Idle VM Show VMs whose CPU utilization is less than 5% Ballooning minimum Minimum value for ballooning 1MB

Composite Memory Indicators for VMware Clusters, Hosts and Capacity Pools Maximum ratio of consumed by active memory 6 Memory overcommitment threshold 1.2 Memory Pressure Indicator for AIX PowerVM Hosts Memory page rate threshold for partitions 64 bytes/s Minimum number of partitions that can exceed Memory page rate threshold 20 CPU Pressure Indicator for VMware Clusters and Hosts CPU Ready threshold for VMs 10% Minimum number of VMs that can exceed CPU Ready threshold 10 CPU Pressure Indicator for AIX PowerVM Hosts CPU Ready threshold for VMs 10% Minimum number of VMs that can exceed CPU Ready threshold 10 Storage Pressure Index for VMware Clusters and Capacity Pools I/O latency threshold 30 ms Minimum number of datastores that can exceed I/O latency threshold 10 Spare VMs
Use Composite Memory Utilization % indicator instead of Memory Utilization % metric
Default VM CPU usage
Default size is used when no VMs are running on the host/cluster
Default VM memory usage
