Is it correct that the shortest configurable polling interval is 15 min.?
Perhaps I'm too immersed in performance details & granularity but 15 minutes seems -- to me -- to be too coarse-grained for detailed performance troubleshooting & making decisions about load re-balancing etc.
Am I expecting the tool to do what it is not designed to do? That its primary function is to be a high-level monitor?
I have 3 EMC Clarrian SANs, and as I understand it, EMC SANs capture historical performance details every 10 minutes and store it. Profiler (for reasons I don't know), gathers the EMC data every 15 minutes. So even if you wanted to go lower, EMC only does a 10 minute resolution.
If you want to capture finer detail, use Navisphere Analyzer in realtime, and save the data after your capture period.
