Disabling performance data collection

To reduce network traffic or to improve performance on servers with slow WAN links, you can disable the rules that collect performance data. Each performance counter has two rules: One for the operational database and one for the data warehouse. If you disable an operational database rule or data warehouse rule, performance data cannot be viewed in the Operations console or in reports.

Note: When you disable the rules that collect performance data, the views and reports that rely on this data do not work. You must enable them again before you use the views or run any performance data reports.

To disable the rules that collect performance data:

  1. Open the SCOM Operations Console and connect to the SCOM Management Group.

  2. Select Go > Authoring.

  3. In the left pane, select Rules.

  4. Change the scope to EMC SI Snapshot Pool and EMC SI Storage Pool.

  5. Select and double-click the rule that you want to disable.

Note: The collection rules for the operational database include (DB) in the name. Collection rules for the data warehouse include (DW) in the name.

  1. Open the Override properties and select to edit the overrides for all objects of class.

  2. Select the EMC Storage Integrator Customizations management pack.

  3. Change the Enabled property to False.

  4. Click Apply and verify the changed values.

  5. Click OK, and then click Close.

  6. Repeat this procedure for each rule that you want to disable.
