Brocade SAN SNMP load data frequency too high

Stor2RRD 2.10 (and before) requests about 5000 Values through SNMP from Brocade DCX every minute. Unfortunately these systems have a very small CPU und CPU goes up to 70%. How can we change the schedule to 5,10 or 15 Minutes? I Changed the Cron schedule, but then I got no graphs anymore.


  • Hi,

    yes, you can simply change cron  schedule.
    5 or 10 minuts is generally ok and should work.
  • Strange! if I change the first * to */10 I get no graph anymore for the FC switches, even after reboot. I see load_sanperf.out being updated every 10 minutes (just showing that the switches are queried). I see no further updated files regarding the san switches in the logs folder. Also executing manually shows no errors.  
  • strange, it normally works, send us logs or try 5 minute

    Note a short problem description in the text field of the upload form.

    cd /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd # or where is your STOR2RRD working dir
    ps -ef |egrep "2rrd" > tmp/ps_log.txt
    tar cvhf logs.tar logs etc tmp/*txt
    gzip -9 logs.tar

    Send us logs.tar.gz via https://upload.stor2rrd.
