Change capacity forecasting settings globally

Capacity forecasting settings include the forecast calculation method and thresholds for the metrics. By default, the settings are set globally.

See Customize capacity forecasting settings for single nodes, interfaces, or volumes.

Change calculation method and thresholds for nodes or volumes

  1. Click Settings > All Settings, and select Orion Thresholds in the Thresholds & Polling section.

    If you are in a capacity forecasting resource, click Edit, and click Orion General Thresholds.

  2. Specify values for Critical Level and Warning for the metrics:
    • AVG CPU Load for CPU usage on nodes
    • Disk Usage for volume capacity usage
    • Percent Memory Used for memory usage on nodes
  3. For each metric, select the calculation method.
    • Calculate exhaustion using average daily values
    • Calculate exhaustion using peak daily values
  4. Click Submit.
  5. You have changed the method and thresholds for calculating capacity forecast for monitored nodes and volumes.

Change calculation method and thresholds for interfaces

  1. Click Settings > All Settings, and select NPM Thresholds in the Thresholds & Polling section.
  2. Go to the Interface Percent Utilization section, define the Critical and Warning threshold values for the metric.
  3. Select the calculation method:
    • Calculate exhaustion using average daily values
    • Calculate exhaustion using peak daily values
  4. Click Submit.
  5. You have changed the method and thresholds for calculating capacity forecast for monitored interfaces.
