Reporting interval was automatically increased to avoid system overload.



I am looking to get peak CPU usage over 1 month. If I report on 1 day it gives me the 1 minute interval I am looking for. Any report longer than a day and it rolls up to do hourly averages, and notes that it did this at the bottom of the report.

Is there anyway to override this behavior? How can I show peak CPU with 1 minute intervals over a months time? I guess I can produce a report each day?

Thanks, Drew

PRTG automatically adjusts these intervals in order to avoid system resource issues. It is not possible to override this automated feature.

If you absolutely require 1 minute intervals then, yes, you would need to generate one report for each day.

With CSVImport you can check the "use uncompressed data" checkbox to get the functionality you are looking for. It actually gets the data in 24 hour blocs from PRTG and combines it into one graph.

This way you can get the peak CPU usage over 1 month as the data is not compressed into hourly averages.

This feature is available as of CSVImport

In version 8 of PRTG (coming soon) the limitations are less restrictive (this was possible because we were able to completely decouple reporting from the web interface, so long running reports can not pottentially slow down the web interface in V8)
