By default, the monitored servers produce a new block of samples every 30 seconds. Increasing this to 60 seconds, while reducing the PingDataMetrics Server’s polling rate to 60 seconds, reduces the sample processing overhead.

  • To change the frequency at which the monitored servers create sample blocks, run the following dsconfig command:
    $ bin/dsconfig set-backend-prop --backend-name metrics \
      --set sample-flush-interval:60s
