Configuring Statistics-Related Policies

This chapter includes the following sections:

Configuring Statistics Collection Policies

Statistics Collection Policy

A statistics collection policy defines how frequently statistics are to be collected (collection interval) and how frequently the statistics are to be reported (reporting interval). Reporting intervals are longer than collection intervals so that multiple statistical data points can be collected during the reporting interval, which provides Cisco UCS Manager with sufficient data to calculate and report minimum, maximum, and average values.

For NIC statistics, Cisco UCS Manager displays the average, minimum, and maximum of the change since the last collection of statistics. If the values are 0, there has been no change since the last collection.

Statistics can be collected and reported for the following five functional areas of the Cisco UCS system:

  • Adapter—statistics related to the adapters
  • Chassis—statistics related to the blade chassis
  • Host—this policy is a placeholder for future support
  • Port—statistics related to the ports, including server ports, uplink Ethernet ports, and uplink Fibre Channel ports
  • Server—statistics related to servers

Note


Cisco UCS Manager has one default statistics collection policy for each of the five functional areas. You cannot create additional statistics collection policies and you cannot delete the existing default policies. You can only modify the default policies.


Configuring a Statistics Collection Policy

Procedure
      Command or Action Purpose
    Step 1 UCS-A# scope monitoring  

    Enters monitoring mode.

     
    Step 2 UCS-A/monitoring # scope stats-collection-policy {adapter | chassis | host | port | server}  

    Enters statistics collection policy mode for the specified policy type.

     
    Step 3 UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy # set collection-interval {1minute | 2minutes | 30seconds | 5minutes}  

    Specifies the interval at which statistics are collected from the system.

     
    Step 4 UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy # set reporting-interval {15minutes | 30minutes | 60minutes}  

    Specifies the interval at which collected statistics are reported.

     
    Step 5 UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy # commit-buffer  

    Commits the transaction to the system configuration.

     

    The following example creates a statistics collection policy for ports, sets the collection interval to one minute, the reporting interval to 30 minutes, and commits the transaction:

    UCS-A# scope monitoring
    UCS-A /monitoring # scope stats-collection-policy port
    UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy* # set collection-interval 1minute
    UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy* # set reporting-interval 30minutes
    UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy* # commit-buffer
    UCS-A /monitoring/stats-collection-policy #
     

    Configuring Statistics Threshold Policies

    Statistics Threshold Policy

    A statistics threshold policy monitors statistics about certain aspects of the system and generates an event if the threshold is crossed. You can set both minimum and maximum thresholds. For example, you can configure the policy to raise an alarm if the CPU temperature exceeds a certain value, or if a server is overutilized or underutilized.

    These threshold policies do not control the hardware or device-level thresholds enforced by endpoints, such as the CIMC. Those thresholds are burned in to the hardware components at manufacture.

    Cisco UCS enables you to configure statistics threshold policies for the following components:

    • Servers and server components
    • Uplink Ethernet ports
    • Ethernet server ports, chassis, and fabric interconnects
    • Fibre Channel port

    Note


    You cannot create or delete a statistics threshold policy for Ethernet server ports, uplink Ethernet ports, or uplink Fibre Channel ports. You can only configure the existing default policy.
