Architecture

  • All  nodes in an analytics cluster must meet 2 networking requirements – less than 1ms of latency & at least 1Gb of throughput
  • :  ALWAYS set NTP to a validated internal time source for ALL Analytics  nodes.
  • : When deploying your  nodes, NEVER put them on the same datastore as your  server or its database.
  • : If the vCenter metric Summary|VC Query Time in  exceeds 300000ms, it indicates vCenter issues. Create a KPI or alert.
