Some objects might continue to appear on the dashboards even after agents have stopped collecting data about them. You can set a time after which such objects will be cleaned up.

Procedure

  1. Open the /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/plugins/inbound/V4V_adapter3/conf/v4v.properties file on the vRealize Operations Manager master node.
  2. Modify the value of parameters whose cleanup time you want to change.

    The value is given in days. Enter a floating-point number for a period of time less than one day. For example, 0.5 is twelve hours and 0.0417 is one hour. An empty value indicates that the object is never cleaned up.
