Issue/Introduction

IPC qos metrics appear to be duplicated when viewed in SLM 

Minute 1: time=18:00:00 value=46 
Minute 2: time=18:00:00 value=46 
Minute 3 time=18:02:00 value=49 
Minute 4 time=18:02:00 value=49 

Probe is configured with default interval of 60 seconds 

Cause

The probe was actually only sending 1 qos metric every minute as expected.
However whilst the time stamp of each qos message was incremented by one minute, every second qos message contained the same "sampletime" value (as seen in Dr Nimbus) and thus the data engine recorded it with the same time in the DB.

Environment

  • UIM any version
  • Processes probe 4.60 and 4.64

Resolution

probe v4.64-T1 resolves this issue
