Microdeltas is an experimental feature for measuring performance with a resolution smaller than 3 minutes.

In the next release of Monitoring Plugins for NetApp, we introduce a new feature that provides ways to measure performance with very small deltas (in the time scale of seconds). All you have to do is set a variable in the NetApp::Tools:

const my $MICRODELTA => 0; # experimental Microdelta, Seconds; 0 = off

e.g.: if the variable is set to 10, all of the performance collectors would collect the data twice within a passage, each sweep separated by 10 seconds.

More details can be found in the commented configuration examples …/etc/microdelta_example.cfg provided alongside the archive.
