Question:

How to see absolute cumulative value in CA performance Management ?

 
Environment: 
All versions of CA Performance Management. 
 

 

Answer: 

 
The NeedsDelta Attribute needs to be set to False.This should cause the DC not to compute deltas for the counter, and to return the raw value of the counter which you
would be able to see in the graphs.
 
Example :-
 
Attribute name="astConfigCallsProcessed" external="true" type="Long"> 
<Documentation>"The total number of calls processed through the Asterisk PBX since last restart."</Documentation> 
<Source>1.3.6.1.4.1.22736.1.2.6.0</Source> 
<IsIndex>false</IsIndex> 
<IsKey>true</IsKey> 
<NeedsDelta>true</NeedsDelta> 
</Attribute> 
 
Following is the Description for NeedsDelta
 
Uses a flag to indicate whether to delta (that is, store the difference between current and last poll for Counters) the MIB variable.
 
Default: false
 
Recommendation: Set to true if the variable is defined as a Counter, Counter32, Counter64, or TimeTicks quantity in the MIB.
 
Can be updated: Yes
 
Possible values: true, false
 
Effect of updating: The polled data changes.
 
When does the update take effect: Next poll
 
Required actions for updates to take effect: None
