There are two ways to configure the agent: automated (available since version 5.5) and manual. Below are the steps to configure either option:
Automated configuration of the Health Service
Run the task for each collector system in your environment. This task is included in Veeam Management Pack and sets the registry entries for OpsMgr agent or Management Server to maximize efficiency when processing large data volumes as a proxy. The task name and location have changed between versions of the Management Pack, so the instructions are specific to the version that you have installed:
Version 6.x and later
After discovery of collector services is complete in Ops Mgr, you should see the collector servers listed under the Veeam Collector s > _Veeam Collectors view. The task should run automatically when the collector is installed, but to run it again at any time later with the following instructions:
- Open the Monitoring pane of OpsMgr console
- Select the Veeam for VMware > Veeam Collectors > _Veeam Collectors view
- Select the collector system
- From the Actions pane, select task Veeam VMware Collector Service Tasks > Configure Health Service
- Run this task against each collector system
Note: The task will cause the Health Service to restart. Also, the values (listed below) are the default base values. If they values in the registry are already higher than the ones associated with the task, they will not be lowered by the task. In addition, you have may increase these values by editing the parameters before running the task, if it is necessary to increase these values beyond the default.
Manual configuration of the agent
To configure the agent manually, it is necessary to create/change certain keys in the registry on the collector system. All of the settings below as DWORD values with the data expressed in decimal format (please note that the registry editor defaults to hexadecimal).
Registry Key: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HealthService\Parameters\
|Registry Key: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HealthService\Parameters\Name
|Persistence Cache Maximum
|Persistence Checkpoint Depth Maximum
|Persistence Version Store Maximum
|State Queue Items
Note: If the State Queue Items entry does not already exist, it should be created as a 32-bit DWORD value.
Registry Key: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\HealthService\Parameters\Management Groups\<GroupName>
The changes to the registry will take effect when the Health Service on the collector system is restarted.
