Issue/Introduction

The VmWare Collector freezes after a while (~2h) and stops collecting any metrics.
It works again after a restart.

Cause

The historic files maximum size has been reached (by default 2Gb).

 

Environment

Release : 5.8

Component : SYSLOAD

Resolution

. Stop the VmWare collector

. Remove or backup the Historical files (.idx, .dat, .lck) in S ' D:\sysload\vmware\sldvmcluster\history\VMCLUSTER-Cluster-EVC'.

. Rename  '_sldvmcluster_worker.log'

. Start the VMware Collector Cluster

. Make sure that the data is historized as expected (wait for 3 iterations)
