vCOPS: admin alert "number of resources exceeds supported limit"

We recently started seeing the following alert in our vCops environment.



Resolution:

The problem is that the maximum of 1000 supported resources has been reached.
To fix this you have to update the advanced properties configuration file for analytic.


  • Open SSH session to Analytic server.
  • browse to /usr/lib/vmware-vcops/user/conf/analytics/
  • open the file advanced.properties (vi advanced.properties)
  • add the following line to the file:
    • "maxNumberOfResourcesSupported=<#>"
    • make sure the number added is larger than 1000 since this is the default
  • save the file
  • Restart the analytic services within vCops.
    • "service vcops restart analytics"
