How to send vCenter data to Active IQ in large compute environments

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • NetApp HCI
  • NetApp Hybrid Cloud Control (HCC)
  • NetApp SolidFire Active IQ
  • Management node (mNode)
  • Large compute environment: over 180 compute nodes
    • Not limited to HCI systems only


This article explains how to send the compute/vCenter telemetry for large-scale compute environments.
By default the timeout for pulling telemetry from the vCenter onto the mNode is set to 60 seconds. For large environments it can take more than 60 seconds transferring the larger payload. As such the data will not be sent to or appear in Active IQ. 

    AIQ_API_REQUEST_TIMEOUT_SEC: float = env.float('AIQ_API_REQUEST_TIMEOUT_SEC', default=60)
    """Default timeout for AIQ API requests in seconds"""
