Monitored servers can produce metric samples every second, which is useful for short-duration changes. These samples are less useful hours later, after the per-second data is aggregated to per-minute data.

  • To change the base sample production rate from the default of 1 second to 10 seconds, use the dsconfig tool.
    $ bin/dsconfig set-plugin-prop --plugin-name "Stats Collector" \
      --set "sample-interval:10 seconds"
    This change reduces the total data volume by about 90 percent.
