Setting a delay on performance batches

A configuration option for the zenperfetl daemon allows you to delay the execution of a performance batch until it reaches a specified amount of time into the past. This defaults to fifteen minutes and should not be changed without consulting Zenoss Support.

To change the value of the delay on performance batches:

  1. Log in to the Control Center master host as a user with sudo privileges.
  2. Attach to the zenperfetl service.
    serviced service attach zenperfetl
  3. Change to the opt/zenoss/etc directory.
    cd opt/zenoss/etc
  4. Open zenperfconfigetl.conf in an editor and uncomment the line containing the setting for batch-delay and set it to the value you want (in minutes).
