Note

Statistics displayed in evolution tables and graphs by months correspond to values of indicators measured the last day of concerned months. « Snapshot » statistics ( versus evolution statistics by month ) correspond to values of indicators measured the last day of the reporting period. When an evolution calculation is done, it is calculated comparing values of indicators the last day of the reporting period and the values of indicators the day before the first day of the reporting period.

Prerequisites

To ensure consistency 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 | metric1=valueunit;warning_treshold;critical_treshold;minimum;maximum metric2=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 storage plugins and memory plugin return this maximum value. The unit must be Bytes.

Warning

This report is compatible with the timeperiod 24x7 only. This timeperiod have to be configured on the menu “General options | Capacity statistic agregated by month | Live services for capacity statistics calculation”
