IBM Spectrum Control (TPC) and STOR2RRD coexistenceSTOR2RRD can coexists with IBM Spectrum Control by monitoring same SVC/Storwize storage under one condition.
Booth tools must use the same sample rate as both use the same data collection.
STOR2RRD default sample rate is 5 minutes, TPC uses 1 minute we believe.
- switch TPC to 5 minutes: apparently TPC rate can be changed (at least it was possible in older versions).
- switch STOR2RRD to 1 minute: STOR2RRD sample rate for SVC/Storwize supports 1 minute sample rate but we do not recommend 1 minute unless it is really necessary.
Some big SVC clusters (8 nodes) might have a problem to provide data even per 5 minutes therefore we recommend 10 minutes. STOR2RRD sample rate change
