How to change default historical data collection period for Veeam ONE Server


By default, Veeam ONE Server collects historical performance data from a newly added virtual server for the last 3 months only. In some cases it is necessary to collect data for more than 3 months.


To change the default historical performance data collection period for Veeam ONE Server, follow the instructions below:
  1. Open Veeam ONE Monitor Client and remove a virtual server from the infrastructure view.

  2. Log on to the Veeam ONE Server machine, open Registry Editor and navigate to the Veeam ONE Server registry folder: 

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam ONE Monitor\Service

  3. Create a new value with the following settings: 

    Type: DWORD 
    Name: LowPerfQueryPeriod 
    Value: specify required period in decimal format (in minutes)

  4. Restart Veeam ONE Monitor Server service.

  5. Open Veeam ONE Monitor Client and add the virtual server in the infrastructure view.
