Would it be possible to increase performance collection for individual VMs?
I'm trying to right-size VMs and need accurate performance metrics from the last 5 weeks. However, I'm finding that because Veeam rolls up the statistics too much, I'm losing the vital small periods when CPU or memory peaks. For example, a VM might work hard at end of month during a batch run, so I need to ensure it has sufficient CPUs and memory during this short period, or it may regularly spike to 80% a few times per hour. Because these stats are being averaged over time, I'm losing these peaks, so 85% CPU usage might become only average 40% after an hour roll up. This means the oversized reports are not accurate enough for us.
If we could target certain VMs and ask Veeam to collect full 5 min perf data for a set period it would really help. I understand this may not be possible due to the way Veeam stores perf data in its database, but I thought it would be worth asking. I know you can increase the setting globally but this would totally kill our database as we have nearly 2000 VMs.
