Data collection requirements
Network segment metrics
To collect network segment metrics, you must install the Network Monitor Agent. For information about installing the Network Monitor agent, contact your system administrator. For information about the metrics associated with NT Network Segment Statistics, see NT Network Segment Statistics.
TCP IP metrics
To collect the TCP/UDP configuration metrics, ensure that the SNMP service is installed.
Impact of data collection on NT User Configuration metrics
Data collection in Microsoft Windows for the domain controller causes the NT User Configuration metrics to be extremely large in size, which can have the following effect:
- High CPU utilization by the bgscollect process on the computer
- Creation of large NT User Configuration UDR data files
To control the amount of data collected for this metric group
Modify (or create, if one does not exist) the Collect.cfg configuration file so that it matches the following syntax:
BEGIN_CONFIG BEGIN_NT_SYSTEM_COLLECT COLLECT_ALL_USERGROUP = FALSE MAX_USER_RECORDS = 500 END_NT_SYSTEM_COLLECT END_CONFIG
- Restart the Capacity Agent on the remote computer.
