How to Change the Default oswatcherbb Data Collection on BDA 4.12 and Higher (Doc ID 2541875.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2019

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.12.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

After enabling oswatcherbb using, How to Enable oswatcherbb on BDA 4.12/4.13 (Doc ID 2524725.1), only two days worth of data is collected in the form of *.dat files. This differs from the three weeks worth of data collection with ExaWatcher.

For details on OS Watcher, see the, OS Watcher User's Guide (Doc ID 1531223.1).  By default files are not zipped and 48 hours of logging is retained.  The BDA uses those defaults.

It is possible to change the data collection arguments from the default on a per session or permanent basis.

To change the data collection arguments from the default follow the steps below.  Do not change bdastartup.sh directly to make the changes because this will cause bdachecksw to fail and raise an rpm validation check on "rpm -V bda".  Any changes to bdastartup.sh will also be overwritten on Mammoth upgrade and Mammoth patching action.
