    Polls Per Second Tuning

    Donald_Francis

      What does everyone use for this setting?

      Is it best you always set the recommended?  Go higher if the box can handle it?

      I notice that the more elements the box is monitoring the more those suggested figures with go up.

          I think it is best to set the polls per second to the value recommended plus or minus one or two units. Orion calculates this value based on the number of elements you are monitoring and the intervals for status and statistics collection that are currently set. The resulting value is the number of polls per second that Orion determines that it will need to put out each data collection interval in order to collect the required ICMP and SNMP data for all monitored elements.

          If you set this value lower than needed, you will experience data gaps, if it is set higher, you are just wasting CPU resources.
