Flow of capacity data - distributed VM Manager Tool
Distributed VM Manager Tool is installed on any computer on which the BigFix® client is installed. Capacity data that is collected from VM managers is uploaded to the BigFix server. Then, it is imported to License Metric Tool.
|1.||Changes in configuration of the VM Manager Tool and VM manager connections are made in the configuration files.||After every change and reload of configuration||The change is effective after you run the -reloadconfig command.|
|2.||VM manager data is collected from VM managers by the VM Manager Tool.||Every 30 minutes||
Restriction: In case of subcapacity reporting, it is necessary to capture mobility of VMs. To ensure that it is captured, data from VM managers must be collected every 30 minutes. You can change the frequency of collecting data only if you use License Metric Tool for purposes other than subcapacity reporting.
|3.||VM manager data is uploaded from the VM Manager Tool to the BigFix server.||Every 12 hours|
|4.||The current infrastructure data from the clients is imported from the BigFix server to the License Metric Tool server. The current infrastructure data from the VM Manager Tool is imported directly from the VM Manager Tool to the License Metric Tool server.||Every 24 hours|
It might happen that the VM Managers panel does not display up-to-date information about your virtual systems. The delay might be caused by the fact that the data about your virtual environment and the configuration data goes through many infrastructure elements and depends on various scheduled tasks. As a result, the time that is needed for the complete virtualization data to reach License Metric Tool and be displayed in the interface might last up to two days depending on your specific configurations.
