About metered resources in Veritas Operations Manager 5.0

Table: Log configurations lists the resources that are metered and the difference in the log configurations of prior versions of Veritas Operations Manager and Veritas Operations Manager 5.0 and onwards. For example, to understand the percentage of CPU utilization of a system, the metering is done every 5 minutes for 24 hours in Veritas Operations Manager 5.0. Whereas the metering in the prior versions of Veritas Operations Manager was 5 minutes for one week.

The data that is collected during metering is used to generate the performance charts of the resource.
