DFM 3.8 polling for userQuotaMonInterval - Can you set the time?

All,

This question applies to most of the DFM polling intervals, but this one in particular is set to 1 day by default.  IHAC that is integrating a custom application with the DFM user quota data, and is concerned about the accuracy of this data.   They would like to guarantee that the quota monitors are refreshed prior to the daily run of this application so that proper action can be taken.

Is there any way to specify what time of day the 1-day polling schedule adheres to?  Can you regulate it by issuing a manual "refresh counters" command?  If you did so, would DFM wait a predictable 24 hours from there to poll again?

Thanks.

Yes. dfm host discover <filername/id>

DFM already provides the default 1-day polling for user quota monitoring interval and the same can be viewed within the DFM WEB UI. Just go to options page (Setup->Options->Monitoring) and search for "User Quota Monitoring Interval". Though the default value is set to 1-day, it can also be changed.

Please Note: If the User Quota monitoring interval is reduced to a low value, then DFM collects the information more frequently, which might have negative impact on the performance of storage systems and DFM.
