How can I calculate the retention period for PacketShaper reporting?
I am unable to generate PacketShaper reports older than three months. What is the retention period of measurement data?
Use the following formulas to calculate the retention period of measurement data:
Link retention period: Max samples / 2 links (Inbound and Outbound)
Partition retention period: Max samples / Number of Partitions
Class retention period: Max samples / Number of Classes
To determine the maximum samples, run the me show CLI command. To determine the number of partitions and classes, use the sys limit CLI command.
Sample me show output. Not that different PacketShaper models have different values.
class day Interval:1m Samples: 1474560/ 1474560
Sample sys limit output:
To calculate the class retention period using the above examples:
Class day report retention period, (interval: 1 minute)
Conclusion: For the class day group, retention period is 1.46 weeks with 100 classes.
Class month report retention period, (interval: 1 hour)
Conclusion: For the class month group, retention period is 0.87 year with 100 partitions.
