WBEM Data collection timeout

I have been having trouble with my Data Collection job were it seems like the WBEM\WMI service hangs and SIM starts to timeout collecting the data.

[WBEM] Data collection on this system has exceeded the allowed time.

I can fix it by deleting the nodesecurity.xml file and recycling the SIM and WMI services. Problem is, it still fails after a day or two and the data collection job runs and overwrites all of our disk stat information.

SIM = 6.0
WMI Mappper = 2.7.1
SIM OS = Server 2008 x64 sp2

Are there any tips for troubleshooting the data collection and wmi? Data collection works when it uses the SNMP protocol, but 50% of our servers are virtual and I need to pull disk information for these as well. Thank you.

Hi Greg,

You may run the repair agent task on selected server to repair/install missing/corrupted setting and agents. this will also check the connections.

thanks,

Re: WBEM Data collection timeout

But it's not an agent problem. It is a SIM server problem. I can get the data collection to work if the WMI mapper service is working properly. Something makes it stop working though, then all the WBEM collections time out after that.

It's all or none.

Hi Greg,

it's just a name of the option.

Please check what all it does in this guide\
http://h10018.www1.hp.com/wwsolutions/misc/hpsim-helpfiles/repairAgents_5.pdf

it verifies the target systems their connections, SNMP/WBEM configuration, authentications, SSH, SSl and many other things, actually it helps diagnose the issue.

another option HP Insight Managed System Setup Wizard which is also incrediable.

thanks,

Re: WBEM Data collection timeout

FYI, in case anyone runs across this issue again. I might have solved my issue.

I believe that my SIM server was running out of memory and the WMI process choked. The SIM server did have 8 GB's of memory, but it was using every bit of it.

I added another 8 GB to the server and now it is consistently using 13 GB's.

I haven't had the reoccurrence of the issue since I added the memory.
