Collection definitions apply a polling definition to a node.
They specify the:
- SNMP index to use (if required).
- The frequency to poll
- The amount of data to keep
- How long to collect for.
Collection definitions can be created/edited/deleted in the GUI and also from the CLI using:
Importing and exporting of collection definitions is also supported using opcharts-cli.pl.
Note that these include node names so transferring these between servers means the node needs to exist on both servers.
