Role required: Admin

About this task

If the Discovery sensor transaction takes more than 20 minutes to complete, the following actions occur:
  • The associated ECC Queue input record is set to the error state.
  • The Discovery Status Completed Count is updated.
  • An error message is logged, for example:
    Sensor error when processing Linux - Storage: Transaction cancelled: maximum execution time exceeded
  • The remainder of the discovery continues to run.

    This behavior is provided by the Discovery Sensors Transaction Quota Rule. This rule is active by default.

    You can disable the rule and you can modify the amount of time that has elapsed before the rule takes effect. Accessing this record requires the admin role.

Procedure

  1. To disable the rule, navigate to System Definition > Quota Rules.
    The Transaction Quotas plugin must be active.
  2. Search on the name *Discovery to filter the list of rules.
  3. In the name column, click Discovery Sensors.
  4. To modify the amount of time, edit the Maximum Duration field of the rule.
    The value is in seconds.
