  • Fix bug where events may be timestamped in UTC time (ZEN-22724)
  • Fix misleading ping down message on vSphere hosts. (ZEN-22203)
  • Changed recovery behavior- recover non-timeout errors more frequently. (20 minutes, rather than 4 hours). Place a limit on how much time will be spent on recovery per task, leaving remaining entries for a future polling cycle. This allows more frequent recovery to occur without risking serious impact on the
    overall polling cycle time.
  • Lowered default query timeout (zVSpherePerfQueryTimeout) from 200 seconds to 25. Failures due to timeout are retried as smaller queries anyway, and a faster failure is good for overall collection time.
  • Change default value of zVSpherePerfParallelQueries from 6 to 8, to improve overall query performance, especially on large targets.
  • Group all metrics being polled through the raw data feed by the host and cluster to which they relate, when possible. Hash the hosts over a set of 6 sub-tasks, and collect each one separately. This keeps a bad host from slowing down all the collection tasks randomly. (Any such slowdown is restricted to 1/6 of the data being collected)
  • Add extensive details to the health report, with an emphasis to grouping errors by host/cluster as described above. Raise events when a particular host or cluster is showing large numbers of errors. Calculate average response times, and distinguish between transient and permanent errors in these reports where appropriate.
  • Graph high-level performance collection metrics at the device level (# of counters polled, retries vs normal queries, total elapsed time by task type, etc)
  • When a ping failure event is found for a host, consider the host to be DOWN, rather than ATRISK, regardless of powerState/connnectionState values (ZEN-24612)
