Veeam ONE Monitor performance graphs show the "No Data Available" message.


VeeamDCS.log file may show the following errors:

Collecting thread has failed to initialize (The operation has timed out) and will be stopped

Collecting thread will exit due to serious error (The operation has timed out)

Reporting DB event: Failed to collect infrastructure topology for object vCenter . The operation has timed out (VeeamInfCollectionFailedEvent)

Unable to collect events. The operation has timed out

Unable to collect performance. This operation returned because the timeout period expired

There can be a number of reasons for timeout.


Possible solutions are provided below:

  1. Open the Veeam ONE Monitor console and navigate to Options > Server Settings > Hosts. Clear check boxes for all hosts except one. Wait for data to be imported successfully. If this helps, add hosts one by one to finish the initial data import.

  2. Open Registry Editor on the Veeam ONE Server and create key named Service under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam ONE Monitor. Create the HistQueryTimeoutSec D-WORD (32 bit) and set its value to 3600 in decimal. Next, create the RtQueryTimeoutSec key and set its value to 600 in decimal. If the keys already exist, change their values. Restart Veeam Monitor Server service.
