Prerequisites

  • Percentile configuration has to be correct in General Option > ETL tab

  • To ensure consistency in graphs and statistics, some prerequisites are necessary regarding to performance data returned by plugins. Performance data are data returned by a plugin after the “pipe” - “|” , these data have to be returned as follow

    output-plugin | traffic_in=valueunit;warning_treshold;critical_treshold;minimum;maximum traffic_out=value

It is important to make sure that plugins return the maximum value because lot of statistics are based on percentage, calculated using this maximum value. Be sure that the traffic plugins return one metric for traffic in and one for traffic out. The unit must be Bits/sec.
