CA Spectrumcommunicates with a device:
- SNMP Community StringLets theSpectroSERVERcommunicate with devices on your network.
- DCM Timeout (ms)The number of milliseconds the polling agent will wait for a response from the device before timing out.
- DCM Retry CountSpecifies the number of times theSpectroSERVERretries to establish device communication after the DCM timeout value expires.
- Polling Interval (sec)The number of seconds between pollsCA Spectrummakes to devices.Increasing this number results in less SNMP-related traffic on your network and a smaller load on theSpectroSERVER. Decreasing this number for mission critical devices and interfaces lets you see updated information about these devices in OneClick more often. This can improve your ability to see potential issues on the network before they affect network performance. A decreased Polling Interval will result in more SNMP network traffic generated byCA Spectrum.
- Poll To Log RatioThe number of polls per log. If it is set to 3, then data is logged every third poll.
