Buffering Manager should have tuning parameter for Points with Post Errors
Right now there is a PerfMon counter for Buffer Health. It's either 0, 1, or 2. That's not helpful because it doesn't tell you what is wrong. There are other PerfMon counters for Remaining Queue capacity and Points with Post Errors. The Buffer Manager allows you to change the threshold on when Remaining Queue capacity flags the Buffer Health as Warning and Error. We set that tuning parameter to a crazy high value because we just have an Event Frame based on the Remaining Queue Capacity PerfMon counter tell us when the capacity is low. Otherwise we have redundant Even Frames. We would like a similar tuning parameter for Points with Post Errors so we can similarly disable it.
thank you for your request for additional counters to be added to Buffering Manager. Could you please describe what it is exactly you are hoping to achieve with new performance counters?
Specifically – what do you want to configure? how do you want point error reporting to behave? any other helpful information around your use case that will better help us understand your problem, and the solution you are looking for.
Additionally, this request is something that is really more for the Buffering team than the health team, so I am copying their PM and will figure out how to move this request to that queue.
thanks again for your comments, we really appreciate your feedback – it helps us to improve the product for you and all of our customers.
Janelle, I put the idea here because I couldn't figure out which other forum to put it in.
Also, I'm not asking for more Performance Counter. I'm asking for more configurability around the Buffer System Health. I really don't know how to get all this information down in text. Is there someone I can call and talk to about it?
