Question:

Why do I get no data for bytes, in 2.7 and newer versions of Performance Management?

 

Answer:

 

The following metrics in the interface metric family have been disabled, in Performance Management, as of version 2.7

 

Bytes

Bytes In

Bytes Out

 

This was done for performance reasons

 

Additional Information:

These metrics can be re-enabled, by following these steps

Important! Enabling Bytes metrics for the interface metric family may affect system performance.

 

Follow these steps:

* Log in to the Data Aggregator host.

 

* To verify that the Data Aggregator is running, run the following command:

/etc/init.d/dadaemon status

 

* Run the following script:

/opt/IMDataAggregator/scripts/enableBytesInOutMetrics.sh

The script enables these metrics for all factory vendor certifications. Data Aggregator starts collecting data on these metrics.

 

Note: Data Aggregator does not collect or calculate data for Bytes metrics from the time of the upgrade to when you run the script.

The script does not modify extended vendor certifications. To enable these metrics for individual vendor certifications, extend the certification
