Troubleshooting Windows OS Agent Disk Usage Summary view

"Disk Usage Summary" view for Windows OS agent nodes collects data from all the available Windows OS Agent nodes.
If you are experiencing problems with this specific view, for example if it takes more than 10 minutes to complete or if the TEP client hangs when refreshing the workspace that include this view, then this article can provide some useful suggestion to understood the root cause and possibly fix it.
When a query is executed on several managed nodes, you can experience a performance problem if each agent needs a lot of time to perform the data collection.
It means that the query is too heavy and should be better tuned to return only useful data.
To identify whether one or more OS Agents are facing problems leading to a response delay, we can leverage on the logs of TEMS.
ERROR (UNIT:kpxrpcrq ALL)(UNIT:kpxreq ALL)(UNIT:kpxcloc ALL)
Restart TEMS (not needed if traces have been dynamically activated) and then reproduce the error condition.
If one or more Windows OS nodes are failing in being contacted from TEMS while routing the query request, you may find these errors in the TEMS logs:
The most important message, the one showing the name of the failing node, is highlighted in bold.
So, you can simply make a find in the TEMS logs looking for the string ":NT failed because" to identify one or more agent nodes that have not correctly received the requests and that are likely causing the delay or the TEP hung.
You could have a single or multiple nodes with this error condition.
Once you have identified them, move on the target nodes to investigate why they are not returning data with the expected response time.
As a double-check, temporarily stop these agents and run the query again.
If you correctly identified the impacting nodes, it is expected to have an immediate improvement in the query response time and in the overall performance.
