How to collect and store OVPA/RTM metrics at less than 5 minute intervals.


Is there a configuration change that can be made to OVPA or RTM where it can collect and store data and less than 5 minute intervals. We have a customer that states 5 minute intervals is not good enough to look into CPU spikes and durations etc and they are requesting we collect and store performance data at 2 minute intervals not 5. Can this be done with OVPA or RTM, or is there another agent that can ge pruchased to accomplish this. I do not want to go the route of running manual scripts and storing data into OVPA for collection by Reporter etc.

What is the version of Agent you are using?
With OA (OVPA is an old name) you can change data collection intervals. The RTM as the name goes, its realtime data, and is not stored in any format by the agent itself, where as you have an option to view it, say for eg, via HP PM.
Refer to the OA user manual: https://softwaresupport.hp.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/KM01001256 to change the data collection intervals.

Hope this helps!!
