By modifying your Advanced CPU Load settings, you can change the following global configuration information:

  • SNMP polling intervals, timeout, and retries.
  • Columns to display when polling devices for CPU load, including current load, time-date stamp of last reboot, time-date stamp of next poll, number of processors, SNMP community string, system contact, description, location, name, and OID.
  • Statistics retention and database write frequency.

SNMP Retries: configure the number of times the tool tries to collect statistics from a device.

Statistics Retention:designate how long statistics are kept in the database. You can keep statistics up to 1500 days for trend analysis and historical purposes.
