How Metric Collections Works

Metric collection occurs at the same time and with same collection interval as discovery. The granularity of the data is based on the collection interval configured for the given UCS functional area. See "Host Discovery Works" for more details.


UCS Manager may report impossibly large values (For example: 100 Gbps on 40 Gbps port) - IPM attempts to detect and drop these values when possible.

If you’re not seeing metrics for discovered UCS entities, you’ll need to verify in the UCS Manager that metrics are being updated and have current timestamps. If not, you will likely need to update the collection policies for the UCS Manager components that correspond to the IPM entities that show no data so they align with IPM’s collection intervals.

The complete list of metrics for this integration is available in a separate guide.
